The replacement for the first breakdown, a 29k is stuck behind the train went on fire as the 20:10 ex Belfast

I'd bet good money it was the HEP and the Mk3 gen van would have prevented this.
Wonder how much damage was caused to the locomotive

Those gen vans were due back this month, IE would want to get the finger out and get them sorted.
