    Thank you. Clears things up nicely. Challenging is the word.

    Glad I saw this... was going to go out and see it. Would've been unimpressed if it was a Diesel.

    I can't see any times from York NRM either... cutting it a bit fine, or not releasing times due to trespass risk?

    I suspect the latter: I've seen a lot of movements of what would appear to be IEP stock through Peterborough, but no FS.

    I was told today by someone who has a casual interset in steam that he saw FS on the North London line on Monday or Tuesday this week. Maybe she’s already at Southall.

    Scotsman doesn't appear to have any further work between now and Christmas . Could someone please tell me whether it will be staying at Southall or returning to York during this time ?

    This is only an assumption on my part but as last weekends one way trip to York was to return FS there (before the postponed SD trips this weekend had to be run) I would expect it to go back to York.

    Scotsman returned to York this afternoon on 5Z60 apparently, so assume it will be at NRM until the new year .

    I'd happily swap 60103 for say Glen Douglas and the Jones Goods? Would we have a deal?

    Great news. Riley's have proven to be the team to beat, and have clearly earned this.
