    Let's get it a trouble free run round the Hellifield circuit first eh, then start planning the future itinerary.

    Please take your own advice and stop speculating. It's tedious to read your musings which 99% are way off the mark time and time again.

    At least it is about 35018, unlike the antagonistic rubbish you have posted.

    A lot of toing and froing in and around Carnforth but at 11:52 RTT showed her as right time in the station.

    The toing and froing is par for the course in getting anything out of Carnforth and onto the Wennington line, got to work around the Furness Line as well...

    That's a rather unpleasant and unnecessary comment. Since you are clearly unaware, this is a discussion forum and speculation will always be part of that. 26D_M's posts are as welcome as anyones on this forum and arguably bring more to it than some (possibly including yours?:)).

    Not as far as I know, but it must impair sighting down the fireman side, which may be enough ?

    I cannot be bothered to trawl back through this thread, but I am sure I recall it was suggested that an injector problem was the cause of the last one being curtailed?

    Seems to be going OK, was 20 mins early arriving at Hellifield (admittedly its a very slack schedule) and seems to have set off again suggesting the whole circuit is on for a run.

    Edit - maybe not??? She passed through the station at Hellifield but nothing more recorded yet and she should be at Horrocksford Junc by now - may be RTT not recording though?
