    Is now showing at running with 60163 instead of 70000.

    The times are in the system. Arrival at Worcester about 2.20pm and departing in the usual charter path at 5pm.

    Nothing on UKSteam yet - and only provisional from Steam Dreams on their 'Dates' page. I'm wondering where/when the ECS will come from to form the (provisional) 0854 departure from Tonbridge. Will it be from overnight stabling in the yard, or arrive on the morning - any views?

    Thanks.

    Ignore that. A train type of steam is not available so all steam tours show as diesel

    Nothing on the jungle drums to say it's not OK. Or indeed any reliable web site. Be too late tomorrow if people turn up and no show.
