37215 pushes the boundaries on the GWR

On Friday 17th August, 37215 became the first main line locomotive to cross the new Laverton bridge when it operated an engineering train into the northern headshunt north of the yet to be commissioned Laverton loop. This is 1/4 mile beyond the current limit of DMU operations.  An assortment of wagons were deposited into the headshunt and two dogfish ballast wagons collected from inside the new loop to be taken back to Toddington. In so doing, 37215 ventured further north than any other main line locomotive on the preserved GWR, reaching just 2 miles from Broadway when in the north headshunt.
37215 stands in the north headshunt beyond Laverton loop. Broadway just 2 miles away.
