With a cloud of smoke and dry chemical powder in the background, the crew off 1XS7 and 1255 have just extinguished a traction motor fire on NR56 which was hauling 1XS7. 1255 loaded with NR16 and NR24 wait on crossing loop. Eventually NR24 would replace NR56 and 1255 would detach loading allowing both trains to continue. NR56 was also detached off 1XS7 to allow fitters to cut the traction motor pinion gear. Mingary, 24th March 2002.
