(1) 45015 failed at Crowle. Steve Clark comments : On the return the train was brought to a stand just west of Crowle on the main line alongside the loop that existed there at that time. 45015 had failed. After we had been looped by a number of freight trains 47362 arrived ex Frodingham and dragged the train to Scunthorpe where the 45 was removed and 47362 continued through to Cleethorpes.
