    Please let's not have another ill-tempered debate about trespass. It does nobody any good to wash this dirty linen in public.

    Re: Te Royal Duchy 2012

    Once again your sarcasm strikes....

    Your various other posts aimed at me over the weekend were not replied too as I have spent three nights away from home sleeping in a compo helping to keep railtours moving. During this time net access is often poor and I have more important things to do than trying to get online to respond to your cheap jibes.

    Indeed, maybe this "trespass" related link will help lighten the mood :-

    No, but my money is on 34067. Will be interesting to to compare with 70013 if I'm right.

    Re: Te Royal Duchy 2012

    Is the load fixed at 9 ?, I know 34067 has taken 8 over the banks before without trouble, but had the benefit of linespeed through Newton Abbot.

    Re: Te Royal Duchy 2012

    My info sheet lists coaches A - G. Add the support coach and that makes 8. Is there a kitchen car in the consist? If so that would make it 9.

    Re: Te Royal Duchy 2012

    One behind you in coach F with a couple of other 34081 madmen. :)
    Naturally we'd prefer 34067 but there'll be no complaints if it's 70013 as per the RTC info sheet. Not looking forward to the 05:45 start and the 01:00 return home the next morning though.

    Also in coach G. Set looks like the same as the other two runs so that would make the load 9 (7 passenger+POB+Kitchen).

    Driving down from Beds very early on Sunday morning. Where's the best place to park apart from Temple Meads itself?
