    Got myself to Crofton,Wilts yesterday to see this loco.No smoke which doesn't do a lot for it.

    I appreciate this is a Preservation Forum but I just wondered if anyone knows where I can find the trial-run schedule for the up and coming Hitachi Azuma (Virgin) 800001.? The reason I ask is that after 60009 went through I was told that the Hitachi was due at 3.15pm. travelling to Tiverton.One had gone throughout at 9.15 that morning from North Pole leo depot to Tiverton..Tiverton Loop. I waited from 11.30am to 3.15 (Ugh) and it didn't come through although listed on RRT. Not my photo but here is the morning run passing through Bedwyn/Crofton https://www.flickr.com/photos/pwakely/35965645956/
