33108 was sat in the yard at Highley today. Has it been here ever since the Spring Diesel Festival, or did it go and come back? Any news on how long it's here for?

As it says on the SVR website http://www.svr.co.uk/MeetTheLoco.aspx?id=90 "visiting SVR until May 2018"
Is also used on P. Way trains.

Dear Robin, out of interest I spent a bit of time scouring the internet and found some history on 33108 which I can share with you. Have a look at this hyperlink = http://www.class33crompton.co.uk/Crompton33108.htm

There seems to be a common theme of the occasional diesel locomotive 'lodging' on the railway and then moving on elsewhere.

I filmed 33108 today and thought I'd better edit out part of it, but when I viewed it on my pc I realised what was happening - the buffers were being set back, or whatever the term is, to use the buckeye coupling?

I've seen it before with coaching stock but not with a loco.

It's a 5 minute clip of the train arriving, departing etc.

Dear Sharpo, another good video and thank you for sharing it. The DMU also makes an appearance.

Dont panic Sharpo - its all quite normal. Only a few classes of loco are fitted with buckeye couplers, mostly Southern Region. A batch of 33s had them fitted for the 67 Bournmouth electrification. Bounemouth to Weymouth was not electrified. High power REP units would propel 2 trailer sets (TC) to Bournemouth where the 33 would hook on and take the TC s to Weymouth leaving the REP behind. The other class to be fitted were the electro diesels, class 73.

If you dont use the buckeye you need to use an emergency screw coupler which is carried in the brake. What you saw was the buckeye being lifted and the buffers shortened. The SR never bothered running all EMUs with the buckeye raised and the 33s when on Weymouth duty.

I have kept the best til last. LNER corridor tenders are buckeye fitted and when FS visited it had a corridor tender and the buckeye was used when coupling to the teaks

Is a visitor or a resident as the Spring Diesel Gala website it still lists 33108 as a home engine so is it a visitor or a home engine?

As the website states

'Alongside the fantastic selection of visiting locomotives and special attractions will be supported by members of our home fleet, including Class 14 No. D9551, Class 33 No. 33108, Class 42 No. D821 Greyhound, Class 50s No. 50031 Hood, No. 50035 Ark Royal and No. 50049 Defiance, Class 52s No. D1015 Western Champion and No. D1062 Western Courier.'

I made enquiries. It was on hire from May 2017 to May 2018. The hire has been extended (it runs FootEx in June). Some on the railway consider its position to be akin to SKP's, however [as of very recently] it does not have a 'resident' running agreement with the SVR.

(I did point this out at the time but the website event page was not updated. Pete has however updated it on Meet our Locomotives, where it is shown as a visitor).

I updated the Facebook event page to show it as a visitor and not home fleet.

Whether the gala booklet shows it as such will be one for the event organisers/co-ordinators

Patrick

P.S. There seem to be a lot of diesels as visitors, in addition to 33108 and gala attendees.
Other hire locos are the 37 and (from May) the 40, both on 12 month hires.
50026 is on the railway for contract use of the TMD, and will feature in the Class 50 Jubilee event.
50033 has been leased by Class 50 Alliance and will remain at TYS "for the time being", before attending the Jubilee.
50007 I believe remains on the SVR

33108 was on a test run today along with D821, as mention in the other topic. It is at the rear of the train hauled by D821 but then hauled the train back to Bridgnorth.

Jump to about 11m 15sec to see the 33 waiting to depart, then heading away.
