    Have the times on RTT been uploaded yet for the Stratford on Avon Flyer for 9 April dep Man picc at 7:30am and ret to Man Vic at 22:02pm as provisional times on R.T.C.. as advertised? if not ile check for thursday this week at the latest it looks like it's nearly 3 hours and 50 mins in S.U.A to visit as well. I'm reckoning the Loco could be either 45690 or 35018 with a C,47 as the backup on the rear of the train to turn on Hatton triangle.

    Point of order: it's out from Victoria and in to Piccadilly. Wouldn't want anyone standing at Piccadilly at the crack of dawn waiting for a train that ain't coming.

    bit of an odd one however as a word of warning we have had Kingsbury under blockade the last week . Not a lot of fuel in the garages if you are lucky , many closed . Don't set off chasing without enough to get you home

    Well me and my mate was on this tomorrow I wont say much more but my mate was fuming cos he had booked us on 1st class and was considering a tour in may with R.T.C. and could only find the Windsor flyer but we couldent make Ely early enough incase the cross country service is cancelled due to them striking, I cant go on the cumbrian mountain express cos I'm booked on the V.T. cotswold venturer, so my mate is transferring our booking onto the Welsh mountaineer 19.7.2022 for a extra £60 cos with living in the grim north.

    Yes, thank you for the info. Being "local" to S-U-A I had planned on seeing it three times. Oh well, next time.
