    Cheddington this morning. Not much exhaust from either loco but probably just as well given the stiff westerly breeze at the time. [img]45212+60103 by KING COBRA 92, on Flickr

    Nothing on the S&C. Blue Peter and Gresley have double headed is the closest to it. 46100 double headed with Scotsman 13th September 2017, but only two POB's in tow. Does that count?!

    The combined power of 45212 and 60103 just didn't notice the 1 in 650 gradient north of Norton Bridge earlier this afternoon but a very 60s image for this line. ( Buffer beam torch removed by me in PS ) [ATTACH] A Question -- when did...

    If there is a charge per use, and it is not required to take water to do the full line length, the other promoters may also have decided to pass on it too? The press article in one of the mags suggested West Coast were advising others to do...

    Yes, but the same has happened so far this year with 48151 and 45699, so it would seem any of the loco's at Carnforth can get by without a top up at Appleby.

    Just a shortish report on No.9s first run back. Hope there will be many more and they all fill. If you can, don't miss a chance to travel behind the legendary engine in her final year of mainline running. Cotswold Venturer 16th June 2018 Due...

    I don't think that will indicate if there is a stop or not though. All the ones that haven't stopped this year were timed to stop. Fellsman's I think will always stop, to drop off passenegers to/from the Ullswater option part of that tour, but...

    If neither of the Jubilee's are available for the 23rd June CME in a weeks time, BIL would need to come over for that I would think. 8F over Shap is not preferable, though it's done it in the past occasionally. It would be a good running in turn...
