What no 68?

Diesel Railtour Services held their annual open day at Crewe on Saturday 19th July billed as the launch of the 68 and one was booked to haul a railtour from Eastleigh to Crewe (for the open day).

Not having had much luck with them (thus far) since the first one arrived on UK soil due to eletronic interference problems, predictable one wasn’t available for its first booked job nigh on six months after delivery. Even the 70s didn’t take that long! 57009 and 57008 deputised – reportedly the formers first passenger working – seen here leaving Crewe heading to Chester.
