    Hello, I do not know what this is about (not apparent on the usual websites) but the stock has left Southall (5Z85) so think it is worth posting.

    1Z85 14:15 Windsor & Eton Riverside to Reading (Southern Platforms?) (https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:U13642/2021-10-07/detailed) - has watering noted at Willesden SWS and Ascot.
    1Z86 17:55 Reading to Guildford (https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:U13643/2021-10-07/detailed)
    1Z87 18:56 Guildford to Windsor & Eton Riverside (https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:U13644/2021-10-07/detailed) - watering noted at Chertsey.

    Cheers!

    It's a private charter and the routeing to Windsor makes me wonder if it is SD-related. Long and circuitous to minimise reversals. A works outing perhaps?!

    Could be a staff training/practice run for the Christmas trips?

    Charity event I think. It was, unusually, steam leading up out of Windsor, so I went for it.

    The Headboard showed Huntswood Anniversary. It appears they are a golf club at Taplow, Nr Slough so I guess that's why the tour started and finished at Windsor.
    The highlight for me was Steam at the buffers Southern side of Reading platform 4. Must be a first since 1965.
