    As this has now appeared on UKSteam and the Chiltern web sites I hope I'm not out of order in speculating that a certain Earl may be on this train.

    I've just tried booking online and it's not working. I've also just phoned up and it's rung out and gone to answer phone.

    Done it! But I had to download Firefox to be able to do it. When using Internet Explorer the form kept clearing itself when I pressed the buy tickets button.

    I know, tell me about it! I had a reply to my email to Chiltern, and they admit there's a problem with using IE to book. Firefox worked fine though.

    See you Sunday Alan!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of open source software, where everything just seems to work. =D>
    Now be really brave and ditch Windoze altogether and try a Linux OS. After all I'm sure Bill Gates wont miss your money. ;-)

    It didn't work for me in IE either, but it was OK in Google Chrome.

    Not seen any updates on this for some time. Nor seen any final times yet either on here. Only a week to go too.

    Any ideas on the positioning moves? Nothing on UKSteam as of yet

    Sorry for the somewhat flippant reply. But for obvious reasons I couldn't possibly quote probable timings on a public forum.
    As the old saying goes "it's more than my jobs worth". 8-[
    No doubt as soon as David gets them then the times will be published on UKSteam.

    Might be a bit premature with the timings still lads, not unusual for them to not appear till the Wednesday or Thursday before a Saturday run, patience.

    Apologies if I have missed the sarcasm, but why is it more than your jobs worth? Surely nobody has anything to lose from revealing some light engine timings which are often only a rough guide anyway.
