Picture in Time: Tyne & Wear Metro 4086

Concluding our series of images from days gone by of the Tyne and Wear Metro we feature an image today showing that not everything goes according to plan with a double unit in trouble.

This incident happened on 8th January 2013 and is between South Gosforth and Long Benton. Although 4086 is the leading unit it appears that it is the other of the trains which is in trouble with the engineers standing on top of that unit checking it over. Whatever the issue was it was serious enough to de-train all passengers and they were then walked back along the track to the station at South Gosforth.
