    But there is one early October and if the loco is not required elsewhere before then, then it's in the right place.

    According to RTT, on 9th Sept there are 2 ECS workings from Crewe HS to Southall LS.
    One leaves Crewe at 08.32 and is planned for 60mph, whilst the other leaves Crewe at 10.40 and is planned for 95mph.
    I guess the earlier departure is the ECS for the Sussex Belle on the 10th
    Anyone know what the later one is?
    Thanks

    And a movement onwards from Holgate sidings to the N.R.M. It is also timed for 60 mph on RTT although that's not always to be taken as gospel.

    Because someone copied a 60-TR715 schedule? ( Which is sometimes used for steam schedules.)
    If there is a validated pathto copy and check, why work calculating another one from first principles?

    Cheers, Neil

    Completely in-authentic, but always wondered whether BR green would look less austere with the wheels green to match...

    It would look exactly how you said, inauthentic
