88002 at Carlisle88002 at Carlisle88002 passes through Carlisle with the late running 0Z89 Crewe Basford Hall - Carlisle Kingmoor test run 5.4.17 I decided to head down to Carlisle for the day today, to catch 88002 on it's test run.   Carlisle was very quiet freight wise with 2 freight workings and 3 light engines in 5 hours.    The failure of 92032 on the China Clay working (6S94) near Grayrigg, which resulted in 88002 towing it back to Grayrigg loop caused a long delay for northbound workings in the afternoon as well.   Here are my sightings:
