On the following day the loco and 13 coaches departed Crewe for Carnforth on a crew training run. On the return run the train stopped at Arpley Yard to obtain enough fuel for the Compass railtour engagement on August Monday (31st August 2010). She then returned to Crewe. Earlier in the day, unfortunately, a second training run had been aborted by DBS, leading to great disappointment among many of us waiting at Winwick.
Geoff Monks took the shot of 55022 on the training run with coaches at Froghall Lane Warrington on August 25th 2010.
