57310 drags an errant 390015 forming 1S82 1645 London Euston-Edinburgh Waverley at Easenhall on 17/08/2005. The Pendolino was suffering from AWS failure so 57010 was attached at Rugby. However, all was not well with the Thunderbird as it ground to a halt at Cathiron. After a 15 minute stand it is seen staggering northwards. Use was made of the bi-directional 'Up Main' to allow trains to pass. The train was later terminated at Preston having lost another 55 minutes en route with the 57 being low on power. Thanks to Mark Bearton for assistance with the train ID and other info.
