35018 confirmed for 8 Sept Waverley tour per RTC email and website.
This trip is no longer on the RTC website.
However todays email from RTC says the NWCE a few days later is filling up fast, so the FS bubble has not burst yet>
Not surprising, but still hoping Kilsby gets done again one day!
Hence the 3 trips from Manchester and 1 from Liverpool in December.
As expected Union of South Africa is currently hauling the Dorset Coast Express. 47.802 is at the rear. <BJ>
35018 reported as poorly on the Scarboro' Spa thread, doesn't sound too good for Sunday.
3 days to sort her so no problem....
Do we know what today's issue was ,please?
60009 simmering nicely at Basingstoke tonight on the return from Weymouth
Posted Thursday evening. ''After a busy day preparing the engine for the move to Norwich tomorrow, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland stands alongside 60103 Flying Scotsman on Southall shed this evening''. <BJ>
'Union of South Africa' at the head of 2019's Dorset Coast Expresses, filmed across three of the four trips of which the A4 took to the head of, during August and September.
60009 Union of South Africa on yesterdays Dorset Coast Express, her last ever before retirement, seen at 6 locations all with the A4 putting on a great performance!
Today's Cheshireman now 47802 vice Duchess due to rumoured failure.
More info to the failure here: https://www.facebook.com/PRCLT/photos/a.2171123829590659/2440652969304409/?type=3&theater
And the text accompanying a couple of pics for those not on Faceache:
Unfortunately 6233 was declared a failure in late hours of last night. During servicing in the sidings at Norwich, its was discovered the Right Inside valve spindle bush had siezed to the valve spindle itself. First thing this morning the support crew has already removed the offending valve from the engine and arrangements have been made to transport the damaged parts back to the West Shed for repair.
Gutted for the PRCLT Team and for all those on the tour itself.
injector issues by all accounts
Having driven over 120 miles I decided I may as well film it.
At least the replacement loco was the same colour!
