34067 Tangmere approaches Preston on its second test circuit of the week.315 viewsDuring the first run, an injector problem was found, which led to the postponement of the planned move to Southall. Instead of that run, a second test took place, but it seems that a leaking cylinder might be to blame for the loco remaining in Carnforth ovre the weekend.
