(1) Route & traction confirmation required. Was advertised for a class 31 + 33 top-n-tail but 47832 filled in for failed 31452 'Cerberus'. Reports suggest 45112 'The Royal Army Ordnance Corps' was to be replacement loco for the 31 but paperwork issues prevented this. It is also reported in the pres of the day that 'the first trip to Lowestoft was cancelled after the class 31 failed'...but this was a mistake and should have read 'the first trip to Great Yarmouth was cancelled after the class 31 failed'.
