D6948 completes loaded test run

D6948 successfully completed a loaded test run on Sunday 12th June when it ran from Toddington to Cheltenham Racecourse and return with a 7 coach ECS and 37215 as insurance and deadweight. A few minor issues were encountered (as expected) but the loco performed well and all being well, is on track to make its debut in passenger service on Friday 29th July on the first day of the GWR's summer diesel gala at which the loco will be in use on all 3 days.
