    Hi

    Will an outline passenger/freight timetable be available this time, as I remember from October the trains didn't seem to run to one.

    Best Regards

    Sorry guys we're not ignoring you! Theres a few of us up there today getting things prep'ed for Sunday, we'll give the Ops man a grilling on what the timetable situation is and which parts of the line are open. With regards to lineside passes, there are none, all we ask is that you contribute a little in the shop; perhaps a cup of tea and sandwich etc. Oh and remember guys, NO HI-VIS lol!

    Should be back on tonight or tomorrow morning to let you know of the details.

    Right guys, been up Tanfield today and it looks like the following is happening on Sunday.

    An Andrews House - East Tanfield service for both the Coal Train and Passenger Train due to track renewel on the Sunniside section. At present "Sir Cecil" will take charge of the coal with 49 handling the passenger.

    Timetable

    Coal Train
    Andrews House dep. 10.10(E&B) 12.10 1.25 2.40 3.55
    East Tanfield arr. 10.22 12.22 1.37 2.52 4.07
    East Tanfield dep. 10.50 12.28 1.43 2.58 4.25(E&B)
    Andrews House arr. 11.02 12.40 1.55 3.10 4.37(E&B)

    Passenger Train
    Andrews House dep. 11.30 12.45 2.00 3.15
    East Tanfield arr. 11.44 12.59 2.14 3.29
    East Tanfield dep. 11.50 1.05 2.20 3.35
    Andrews House arr. 12.04 1.19 2.34 3.49

    (E&B) - Locomotive and Brake Vans.

    Mind you im sure there'l be a few copies of the timetable about, if not give us a shout. Looks like P&JR is firing "Sir Cecil", Mk1hater will be guard of the Coal, and for once me and Silverlink will be either floating or getting a few photos.
