    A double-headed West Country and Battle of Britain combo would be good. Renamed Bude and Biggin Hill of course. <BJ>

    Interestingly, whilst a stopping passenger train is booked 35 mins from Bury to Rawtenstall, the freight on Friday morning, first trip, is booked for 65 mins for two loco's. Perhaps a misprint or a layover at Rammy for some reason, although it says N/S. On the way back it's 35 mins. I guessing it should say 08.45 away Bury?

    Have the visitors arrived, can't see anything on RTT for 45690, if so which way are they pointing please?
    Weather is poor for tomorrow, amber weather warning for heavy rain, not good for the goods charter, or anything else for that matter. Saturday and Sunday have better forecasts.

    Can't see an amber warning on here https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weathe...1e887ce3&details&referrer=app&date=2023-10-12

    Certainly looks a fairly soggy morning mind......

    Agreed about Met Office, BBC O/L doesn't but the BBC Breakfast with the infamous Carol gave the warning. but as my late father-in-law used to say, wouldn't pay forecasters with the holes in brass washers! He worked for the Lecky Board and had all the weather proofs in the mobile workshop - just in case!

    8F just came off the goods, and is now sat in Rammy goods loop!

    Then headed back LE to Bury.

    Tweet says failed, but expected back in service later. The class 24 is taking the goods with the Jinty banking.
