0n 16/2/86 load and adhesion tests were carried out with Foster Yeoman's new Class 59's 56033 and 56049 dragged 2 x 59's and a loaded stone train to a point at Savernake where the 56's were unhooked. The lead loco 59001 was then adhesion tested with 59004 (dead load) and the loaded stone train on the drawbar. A mix of what appeared to be wallpaper paste was applied to the railhead to make the task of restarting more difficult. The traffic cones indicating the section of rail where the paste was applied. © - John Chalcraft
