Now Cambridge to York and Return ,times on Realtime
Crikey, that's a bit of a change. Interesting exercise for anyone who had intended boarding at Kings Cross.
Deleted as now not needed in the knowledge that the route was always planned from Cambridge.
It always has been Cambridge to York, just recorded incorrectly on UK Steam.
Passing Cottam Power Station on the approach to Askham Tunnel on a rather overcast,windy and mild day in December.
Thank you and best wishes to you all for Christmas....Simon
Anyone know what's happening at ely? Seems to be getting later and later 2 hours sat there now according to RTT
Thats a weird one, timings are all over the show, 51 minutes early at one point after a missed booked wait, and now 35 late through waterbeach. Is it having trouble getting water?
Just seen empty stock throu Royston (24L) must be sorted as no help from the 57 and was singing along
My grandad was on the train. He said the chap to unlock the gate for the tanker at Ely didn't show up so loco had to run round.
Many thanks for info any idea why the whole operation took 2 hours thou?
Maybe Because you have to find a new place for the tanker to park, you have to get in touch with the signalman to to move the loco, you have decouple the loco, you have to move the loco, you have to fill the loco, you have get in touch with the signal man to move the loco, you have to move the loco, you have recouple the loco, you have to get in touch with the signalman to move the train.
And then you depart.
Edit - And all that is after you have waited for the key holder to arrive, and chased NR to find out if the key holder is arriving.
Fully understand all the above it's just I got two accounts today one as above the other makes no sort of order at all just trying to get some sort of sense lol
