Is there a dalesman this week? If so any idea on what may be on the front? Thanks
According to the WCRC website there is a York to Carlisle trip tomorrow.
What engine is on tomorrows tour.
Rumoured to be a good chance of a big green 'un.
Just a detail but I see the York to Hellifield section now has a visit to a loop at Skipton to be overtaken by the 1049 to Carlisle there rather than at Hellifield. That is because the down goods loop seems to be out of action at Hellifield and the loco changes are happening in the station platform. I wonder if something happened as a result of the problem the other week. Anyway, 20 mins at Hellifield to knock off two diesels and attach the loco seems like quite a challenge!
It seems to have been a late departure from Hellifield and miss out the Appleby stop for a roughly right time arrival in Carlisle for quite a few tours recently.
Don’t forget the horse fair has just finished so another reason to miss out Appleby perhaps as it will still have plenty of Travellers about
Good call. I can't quite work out what happened between Skipton and Hellifield, but anyway the 1049 unit failed to overtake so is behind the charter. Just as well there's no need to stop for water. It might be Hellifield-- Carlisle in under 100 mins.

Eat yer heart out Clan Line, that's what a clean polished locomotive looks like.
JAMES..............pass a well done on to your lads at 10A
Looks stunning (even in full dull) I agree!
She's coming my way on Saturday. Bet she'll pass through my local station while I'm at work.
35018 getting a helping hand at Helwith Bridge and Kirkby Stephen on the return .
Is that the Scarborough Flyer listed on UK Steam? It says it's a RTC tour, but I can't see it on their web site anymore.
Good to see some different locations
35018 returning through Kirkby Stephen Station, 37668 still assisting on the rear.
