    Be nice to see 1501 double headed and/or passing 1501 whilst at ELR.

    Noted on another forum there is a 0Z46 Thorpes Bridge Junc to Thorpes Bridge Junc booked for tomorrow lunchtime but nothing else to/from Thorpes Bridge as yet on RTT. Presume this is 46100 en route Crewe to ELR but performing a turning move so that it faces the requested way on the ELR. It would appear that the previous turning move at Castleton is not now available.

    4 days to go and still no timetable. It's a bit annoying but it makes you wonder whether they're having problems.

    So I’m not the only one who’s wanted to see that then! :) I’m also looking forward to the meeting of both 7029’s at Kidderminster one day.

    Dont think this is the final version as parts of it don't make sense
    Friday for example 10:10 am from Bury is freight, to Ramsbottom, but return at 11:10 is a shuttle passenger/

    i was told it will be Tuesday when final timetable released
