    No light engine moves to and from Paddington, and ECS departs Paddington 9 minutes after arrival, so looks like diesel stays on the back all day.

    As long as Steam Dreams operates a long train with a Class 5 or 6 locomotive then isn't it inevitable that a diesel will be attached for everything apart from the simplest, flattest operation away from busy main lines?

    SD told me no LE path by back available. Seems we were very lucky with 44871 on May 23

    That was a Victoria start Don. You can forget finding LE paths from Paddington on weekday. Not sure there are many on Saturdays now.

    No cyclists tore round the corner as you were filming. Good to have chatted with you yesterday.
