    Vintage trains say Worcester trips are first for Clun, unless these are private charters?

    I thought that tender first is 45mph unless it’s changed between what engine is used

    Since the limit is 45mph, you cannot time the run at the max permitted speed as it would be impossible to maintain, similarly with the return, 60mph timing for a loco with a 75mph limit.

    I know but that would be a 5zxx code. 1zxx on realtime trains indicates with passengers?

    I'm guessing a path to get Mayflower down south will appear soon assuming it's hoped it can do the 7th March job?

    Perhaps it has already come South?

    Something ran under control arrangements on 22/2/2019 Carnforth to Southall.

    The schedule details for the 1Z** show them as "Unadvertised Express" which means they are not trains which appear in public enquiry systems. So that means charters, some test trains, or unadvertised public relief trains.
    The train service code is Vintage Trains.

    The only way to find out what is working the trains will be to go and look. ( That takes away all the fun of speculating... )

    Cheers, Neil

    Thanks, probably ready to swap vehicles with the NB stock being repainted in Eastleigh Works.

    Cheers, Neil

    Tomorrow we will undertake Day 3 of the Clun test runs. No fare-paying passengers are being carried.

    The first opportunity to buy tickets and travel behind Clun is Thursday 28th Feb. Details at:
