    No 80080 so I guess it's not ready, await the arrival of 2857 and 6233 to see which way they will face. MSC32 manages a round trip to Rammy on Saturday and Sunday, not my cup of tea on a weekend like this, but will appeal to some. Make homage to the sun gods for weekend! :D

    6233 arrived tonight, see my photo in the LE thread. She will face south out of Rawtenstall.

    Most visitors by rail appear this way, different photo opportunities, thanks for heads up.

    They usually leave Bury at 12.30, this departure is 6233 according to the timetable, good choice if you're on it!

    Thanks. I am on it, the ticket says 12:45 departure though, so I’m wondering if it’s something else.

    City of Wells, and you're to Heywood first by the looks of it

    Can someone please confirm some of the loco directions please for this East Lancs rookie? As I understand it, only 6233 faces Heywood with the rest of the engines facing Rawtenstall? Thanks in advance.

    As you can see above 4270 faces Rawtenstall, as should 52322 and 34092 (did face Heywood for a while, but should have returned from the GCR facing Rawtenstall). 6233 faces Heywood. 2857 I don't know as yet, if someone else can help, most visitors arriving by road face Rawtenstall. 80080 is not listed so presume it didn't make it, MSC 32 faces Rawtenstall (did last time I saw it).
    Long trip for you, hope you enjoy, Harold.

    Is it possible that 80097 may make an appearance?

    Saw some photos of her in light steam on Bookface yesterday.
