    Does anybody know what the first one is? It's booked at Hellifield Goods Loops 13.12 to 13.50 - does that imply steam also?

    Looking at the codes they are both steam but I suspect one will be cancelled with the later being the most likely but I could be wrong.

    How good it is to read again of light engine and stock moves. It appears that life is steadily returning to normal. :) <BJ>

    Will N09 get towed across the Pennines by a diesel or go on the back of a low loader? If it were towed would it be in steam?

    Very unlikely to be be low loader, solo maybe but most likely in steam accompanied by a diesel.

    Out of idle curiosity more than anything, why is Tornado headed to Carnforth? Is there work booked for it that it's a handy staging post for, or is it simply that it's a better storage and maintenance option than the NRM?

    What was missing from the Trust's explanation was that they wanted to keep the loco and the support coach together and/or that they wanted to use the opportunity to run the loco. Otherwise the coach could have been taken to Carnforth by a diesel.

    For half a minute I was back in 1960, 10years old, cabbing (the real) her at Leeds City, or watching her charge past at Apperley Bridge. Complete make believe I know but wonderful nevertheless. Snapped through Cononley.
