Failure of ground staff to proceed movement on foot, staying at the shunt engine end whilst propellig ten ferry vans just lazyness, sometimes they got away with it other times (like this) they didn't.
The internal use vehicle was used by the outbased T&RS staff to hold stores and had a workbench etc, WEFOC had no loco service facility,no fuel or water point so light repairs made by mainly ex Stratford TMD staff to keep the fleet running
Fuel for shunt locosbeing obtained from Willesden TMD or Old Oak comon TMD
Fuel for 47s at Stratford Fuel Point.
This was not the "first" time 024919 extended its operational limit south.....
