23/09/03: 47785 at Chester having worked 1G95 from Holyhead to BNS and then 1D67 1021 BNS-Holyhead to here and having been cancelled because of dragging brakes on one of the carriages. The remainder of the turn was covered by a 175, 47732 had worked 1H44 that morning - it's possible that 785 worked the evening 1D45 from Manchester though, as it was at Holyhead by the morning but this was not confirmed at the time. 785 failed later in the week, itself having brake problems and was in the WNTR pool by the 29th.
