    Well done to West Coast for getting the exact location of watering at Chatburn into the train planning system. Down south signal 991 near Challow would help WCRC and DB C!
    Cheers, Neil

    2015 (45699)
    2016 (45690)
    2017 (35018 Carnforth-York) (45699 York-Carnforth)

    The 1st ever tour was called the Lune Habitat that ran with 48151 in 2007 .46115 with 70013 tagged on the rear to Hellifield ran in 2008 . Nothing in 2009 but it returned in 2010 with 46115 but now called the Lune Rivers trust special. 44932 did 2011 and 46115 in 2012 but that failed at Hellifield on the outward leg .Think I’m correct but apologies if not .

    We have just been told that the line between Bentham and Clapham is blocked by a landslip. Plan B is to turn SG and go straight down WCML to Crewe.

    Apparently the Carnforth to Hellifield line is closed due to a landslip. The Scot is on the train at the north end in Carnforth up & down loop. Do not know what's going to happen although it may be that a diesel will take the train south to Preston area and reverse there! Who knows?

    The Scot has brought the train back into the station then come off it and run l/e into the depot to turn. Look out for new timings down the West Coast Main Line!
