34067 Tangmere, 1Z88, London Victoria, Fri 14 May 2004 4 - 0918. Stalled on Grosvenor Bank! 66249 had brought the empty stock from Old Oak Common to Victoria. (There were I2 BR Mark 1s, but no Pullmans.) The 66 then began to bank the train up the very steep climb from Victoria to Grosvenor bridge over the River Thames. Unfortunately, its Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) had not been isolated. The signal had changed to red after Tangmere passed, so the TPWS stopped the 66 when it attempted to pass the signal. The result was that Tangmere came to a halt.
