Motor coach 60000 Hastings brings up the rear of our 7-coach train in Hastings station at the start of the Deal Wayfarer railtour.

On Saturday 5 July, unit 1001 successfully operated our HDL Deal Wayfarer railtour; on that tour the 7-car train got “turned round”. Following the tour it was re-marshalled as a 3-car train and taken through the washing plant, then reverting to permanent standby for the Ashford & Hastings service.
