Enquiry into SPAD

Post by 35005CP on Tue Mar 31, 2015 9:33 pm

Hi all,

It looks as if the RAIB are looking into the SPAD from Saturday the 7th March just outside Wooten Bassett Jct... Lets hope this doesn't come to anything for 34067 'Tangmere' and the crew...

Hi all,

How much damage is this going to do to Mainline Steam?

Here are some links into the SPAD;

Just come across this snippet - Doesn't look good for WCRC.... What would happen if they are banned from the mainline and what would happen to all of the locos?? Here is the link;

ORR CONSIDERS REVOKING WCR SAFETY CERICATE

'The Cathedrals Express' passes the site of the now defunct Wolfhall Junction on the Berks and Hants line, on 7th March 2015, with SR Battle of Britain No. 34067 Tangmere in charge on the 1-in-106 climb towards Savernake. Alan Holding

The Office of Rail and Road (previously the Office of Rail Regulation) has confirmed to Railway Herald that it has commenced the start of a process to consider revoking the safety certificate of the West Coast Railway Company (WCRC) following significant concerns over safety.


The ORR has written to industry stakeholders to advise of its concerns and that it has "triggers its formal procedures to consider revocation of the West Coast Railway Company (WCRC) Safety Certificate" as of 17th April. As with the granting of a license, the revocation procedure involves a 28-day consultation process with the industry, before a final decision is made.

Network Rail has confirmed that WCRC has submitted paperwork in relation to the Suspension Notice served on 2nd April, and that the submission is now being reviewed and assessed. Given that the ORR has publically stated its concern over safety at WCRC, there remains the possibility that in the event of Network Rail lifting its suspension notice, the ORR could take steps to prevent the company from resuming operations pending the outcome of the industry consultation.

Any further information is unlikely to come before late May, once the 28-day consultation has concluded, and a decision is reached by the ORR."
