    Yes, my uncle saw her on the motorway yesterday, 30541 should be at the SVR later this morning all being well. - Heard from one of my mates who volunteers at the Mid Hants that 76017 is due to be picked up on Monday.

    I haven't seen the WTT myself yet, so I'm only guessing that the extra pages are full of adverts. If that is the case, then losing the advertising revenue would mean that a WTT with less pages would actually cost more.

    No they are full of loco and carriage diagrams. Of more interest to some would have been a key to the carriage sets eg M is an 8 coach set of LMS stock

    I'll be there on Saturday, and possibly Sunday as well. Already printed off the WTT from svrlive and am hard at work planning my day! As usual, the sheer number of trains that SVR are running is mind-blowing! I can't think of any other heritage railway that offers such an intense timetable.

    So we can download the WTT?

    What is the point ordering the physical WTT if they put it online?

    I’ve paid a visit to svrlive. The only link to a timetable is to the public brochure? Where are you finding the WTT?

    GCR?

    It's possible he's referring to SVROnline, the staff site which uses a Microsoft365 account. People quite often do so, as 'svrlive' is part of the email address.

    Sorry, the public timetable is the one I meant. I see now that it has no loco allocations in it so isn't the WTT, but I always like to be surprised anyway so rarely look at loco allocations in advance.

    Would be good, but as others have pointed out M is maroon Mk1s. L is LMS.

    All they're missing is a nice green rake of Southern stock! Would look nice with 34027 / 92!

    If I won the Euromillions, I'd love to give the SVR a 4-rake Bulleid and a 4-rake Maunsell set - offering a complete rake of coaches covering all possible regions / era. But alas that is yet to happen...
