Can't see that there are any timings for this trip yet, its not going to be Scotsman is it?
No, it isn't.
Thanks, I see the Frodsham Curve is used on the outward trip
Is that the first use by steam since it was upgraded?
5690 likely motive power i'd suggest
Says on the RTC website on the tour page itself that it should be 45690
No , may well have been 45690 in July 2019.
