55002 (D9002) "THE KING'S OWN YORKSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY" passes Sleaford East signal box on the approach to Sleaford station, with the Sunday diverted 1D02 12:05 King's Cross - Hull service, on 30th March 1980. The Locomotive suffered a broken windscreen and was unable to return with the 1A13 16:52 Hull - King's Cross, 47524 being provided instead. 55002 was either turned or repaired at Botanic Gardens TMD as it was available for the following morning's 1A04 07:00 Hull - King's Cross "The Hull Executive" service.
