Apart from the welcome double headed Black 5 motive power I now see from the RTC site that revised provisional times bring the trip back into Manchester as late as 2030 having taken three hours to cross the Pennines from Sheffield. That said, it's still an interesting trip but completely screws up any hope of getting back down south from Manchester on Sunday. So it looks like a bit of creativity will be needed to get my Barnsley to Horbury track without this trip turning into a two nighter. On the face of it a Sheffield exit at 1645 (on RTC timings) will be necessary. So if anyone fancies a one way ride with two 5s from Sheffield to Manchester/Preston on 3rd Nov then send me a message and I'll happily oblige.
