    A John Bull outfit does not fit well with my slimline figure.

    Just left Crewe 09.56, I was going to try for screen shot but taps open so nothing but a cloud of steam. :(

    LSL 47805 (D1935) has been shuttling back and forth all week from Wakefield Kirkgate-Leeds-Skipton. Starting from Doncaster West Yard in the morning and returning there after all trips done. Presumably driver training/route learning, but for what? I originally thought it may be to do with this year's "Staycation Express" extending to Wakefield/Leeds but that is running Skipton-Appleby-Carlisle and is an HST. Curious.

    Realtime Trains - 5Z27 1000 Castleton Hopwood Gf to Carnforth Steamtown
    Realtime Trains - 5Z28 1231 Keighley & Wvlr to Carnforth Steamtown
    Realtime Trains - 5Z60 0426 Carnforth Steamtown to Fort William J.Yd T.C.
    Realtime Trains - 5Z61 0426 Carnforth Steamtown to Fort William J.Yd T.C.
    Movements around Jacobite ECS over the next week. This is not due to feature the K1 as it is now at the NYMR.
    1. Will the K1 join the 5s at Fort William later on?
    2. Are either of the movements double headed 5s or both just one 5?

    I'm saddened to hear that only one of the moves will feature steam. So why are the timings the same then for diesel as steam?
