General News Report digest for May 2003

This article originates from May 2003


Our original two motor coaches have now been fully fitted with TPWS. On Sunday 18 May 2003, 60118 Tunbridge Wells (with 60529 and 60116 Mountfield) went on a TPWS test run. This doubled as a stock-move mission, with 1001 running up to Selhurst depot to collect 3-car South Central DEMU 205 009: the train returned as far as Eastbourne on Monday and, with unit 205 012 also in the formation, returned to St. Leonards on Tuesday morning in an ECS path. The TPWS test was successful, with no defects being found and all the equipment operating as intended. (25 May 2003)
