This Cab Ride was filmed from the cab of EWS Class 73 133 named The Bluebell Railway. This locomotive was being used for driver training and on this occasion the reporting number of 0Z68 was affixed.
Our journey begins at Dollands Moor where a number of Eurostar sets are seen. This route will be via Ashford International and Headcorn, where we are looped. Following an incorrect pathing here, the driver has to telephone the signaller to get the correct path set. This locomotive-only learning service takes the route via Redhill and at Penshurst we stop at a red signal due to a signal failure. Our progress from here is under caution instructions as far as Edenbridge. From here we progress to Stoats Nest and Clapham Juction before arrival at Stewarts Lane.
We thank Driver Dave Corder and Traction Inspector Paul Hicks for their help in making this DVD.
