    Not sure a line possession would be required as the nearest running line is separated by a platform with a sizable canopy on it, though you could see why the platform itself and the road which it's being swung over would need to be closed, not that Moor St is a hive of activity in the middle of the night anyway, maybe a couple of ECS and possibly a freight on the through roads 100 yards away.

    Bit harsh Mr Creese: something might have changed in the intervening month. I for one have no idea whether these things can be arranged quickly if there's an opportunity or if it requires weeks of statutory notice.

    Just out of interest does anyone happen to know what plans the owners of the loco have for it once it has been overhauled? ( In other words which Heritage line it might be destined for?)
    In fairness that might well be a decision they dont need take at this stage!
