    It’s not around the circle according to the above times unless I’ve read it wrong whatever it is but pretty sure it’s not steam with a code like that ?

    It's not it's real code, it's been obfuscated. Which is interesting, as I haven't noticed that with West Coast paths before. They do them with LSL and most freight operators I believe.

    But isn’t this the Carnforth way? I’m sure the head code is just the start. 98767 will be rolling out the depot in Red with Hogwarts Castle on the side…

    As you say, not around the circle; but it is two hours faffing at Carnforth.
