Machine has now been towed at 5mph to Tonbridge West Yard by a GBRf 66 and is now being inspected by senior engineering staff.

Second one of this type to barbecue itself. Is this a built in feature that needs looking at ?

Think it is the 3rd, the 2nd one was put out quickly before it got that bad.
