    Even Pathfinders are showing Saturday's (the 18th) Mazey Days as still being hauled by 50s whilst showing next weekend's (25th) "Champion Torbay Express" as D1015's inaugural run, so I suspect that will be what happens. Anything else might result in confused or angry customers.

    D1015 appears to be, however, having a main line test tomorrow (Friday 17th) from Kidderminster to Avonmouth Docks, double-heading a freight from the latter to Gloucester.

    I'm hearing that it will be the 50s again next weekend as I'm told the engine seized on the western. No idea if the new / repaired one or not...but they arnt having much luck with it sadly...
