Good point! However, that's the very reason I like the green stuff. You can run growlers and chuffers at the same time (and I grew up in that era.... oops, now I'm feelin' old....) :uneasy:

On the You Tube original there is an unanswered post "why did this working need the barriers was it to provide extra brake force?" Does any one know the answer? Brian

Runners serve several purposes

- keeping hazardous loads a safe distance from the crew (crew have unions passengers standing on platforms don't  ;) ). For a long time it was also the regulations and there were no easy opt-outs

- spreading the axle load (eg the runners on some of the steel trains)

- providing brake force

and my understanding is the nuclear runners were there for the dangerous goods rules.

Certain kinds of more dangerous nuclear waste (eg from the submarine reactor cores) would be accompanied by other vehicles too - DRS have support vehicles for this when moving sone MOD flasks.

which carry Civil Nuclear Constabulary or MoD Police (ie scary people with weapons)

As EP indicates it is the safety aspect and practice on this route as far as I know. Only ever seen them up here with barrier runners.

So easily done, Stevie.
At least the new class 20 is streets ahead of the old one detail wise

Thanks EP and Brian. I've seen video of civil nuclear flask trains without runners, especially on the Barrow coast, and just wondered if there was a specific reason for using them on some operations and not others. The naval workings certainly do look awesome. Brian

Green is really growing on me, it used to be my least favourite livery.

I have looked at a few blue 20's now and the yellow ends have all looked a little off colour, or is it just me?
