I'm sure Jonnie will be able to give chapter and verse on it but I think it has something to do with the signalling and that it is a very slow...
There is also 34053 heading to Herston to be dismantled somewhen between February and May. The plan is then for SKP to head to Norfolk for a...
Times are up for these
The evening run is going from Victoria to Clapham J then runs to Hounslow twice once via Kew Bridge, once via Willesden and the opposite leg via...
And 4144 should be running after Christmas on 'normal' trains
44871 at Euston. 57316 coming along for the ride as well.

I see that 34027/1501 are rostered for S1 tomorrow. Does the loco change happen after the first run round at Bridgnorth or the second one?
Should have been John but that loop was full of freights that were being held to allow passenger trains through.

Looks like 80136 is on the 0958 ex Pickering. It was always interesting how 92134 would be on the front of that when it was at the wrong end of...
