    This path is a VSTP ( Control arrangements) for WCRC and the STP path incorrectly coded to DB Cargo has been cancelled. From what I can remember after 10 years away from train planning it isn't possible to change the cost centre between operators.

    Two photos of British India Line on a loaded test run today - at Starricks Farm, and after passing through Ramsgreave & Wilpshire.

    I saw yesterday's movement at Watford Junction just after 7pm yesterday. Loco and support coach.
    While I was waiting several security announcements were made to be aware of unattended luggage and that British Transport Police should be contacted if anything strange or unusual was seen. Should I have taken any action?

    Nice to see BIL out and about again. 10A seems to be slowly getting there but as we know, bringing something back to life and up to main line standard is not something that happens overnight.

    A few shots of 35018 on test. Two shots at Capernwray, one at Hellifield and one crossing Whalley Viaduct.

    Delighted to see BIL out and about, first time seeing it in the flesh. Congratulations to all at WCR who have returned this magnificent engine to steam.

    From what I remember (and life is too short to remember all the group standards) vacuum brake locos are meant to have air through pipes and brake valves to facilitate movement in an emergency. That then connects with the discussion of having standby locos....

    That rings a bell from an RAIB report a while back which made mention of unbraked vehicles in a train being proscribed ie through piped only, such that the brakes cannot be applied in transit even though vehicles either side may be fully fitted.
