68504 Up Hatherley 4 December 2018

Arlington Fleet Group translator vehicle 68504 (formerly Gatwick Express GLV 9105), pictured in the consist of the 5Q32 10:24 Portbury Automotive Terminal to Crewe ECS at Badgeworth on 4 December 2018. This was the delivery run of Spanish built EMU 397003. In addition to the two translator vehicles, there were four barrier vehicles acting as brake runners. Note the temporary brake pipe being fed in through the side window of the EMU. It clearly needs these brake vehicles, as the rusty brake disc on the EMU proves that its brakes are inoperative.
