E300 fire

Post by AdamH » 21:36 Thursday 15th August 2019

One of the last two Mk1 E300 left at Gloucester, fleet number 27511, has been destroyed by fire tonight. It was working an evening Service 24 to Gloucester. Driver and passengers are all OK.

Usual over-the-top language on the local news websites - apparently it 'just exploded' :roll:

Yeah saw that. Rear O/S wheel blew so I guess that’s what they are referring to.

Put on to the back of a low-loader and taken away for scrap this morning.
