    Is it always this late when the dates for Scarborough Spa are released?

    No, but unless things have changed I believe it's to do with servicing facilities at York. However if someone knows differently then please correct me.

    not sure when the wording on the WCR site was edited but noticed it now reads -
    "
    Tickets to go on sale soon.
    To York or Scarborough Via Skipton and Leeds:

    Running Thursdays on 7th July, 4th August and 1st September 2022. Departing from Carnforth, Hellifield, Skipton, Keighley, Shipley, Woodlesford (Leeds) and York. View Journey

    Due to operational constraints, we are unable to offer the south route for this year’s Scarborough Spa Express, however we are due to be hauled by a vintage steam engine all the way from Carnforth to Scarborough.

    Upside is steam all the way so that can't be bad, but I know that there are quite a few diesel enthusiasts who enjoyed the variety of motive power in previous years, adding to the passenger numbers.
