    Back up now except for the timings page. Says only 4 seats left in Standard. Sorry, 3. Diesel lovers must be booking. So SD don't want standard Class on their trains... Presumably 70013 is fine as there's nothing about a change of locomotive.

    Anyone had tickets for this train? Can't access their website either.

    Wonder how many would have come behind 70013 if there hadn't been a clash? Couldn't turn down a Brit over Sapperton; that's too special; moreso with the engine at the end of it's mainline ticket, not the beginning. Hope there's a rerun for those...

    Such a shame it clashed with 70013 to Worcester. Can't be in 2 places at once. Out of interest Al, was the train full?

    Been watching TH Railway videos clips of yesterday. The 'clanking' from a bearing is audible as 70013 drifts into Victoria and is towed out, and being towed later. [MEDIA] They also have this comment: However it became clear that the loud...

    A rather belated showing of my efforts from Saturday, nearly got caught out with the early arrival at Haslemere, didn't expect it to be quite so up the backside of the SWT service. Some more shots here -...

    Thank you kind sir. I tend to agree the runs show Galatea pretty much on the limit. To complete your excellent table, the Appleby-Ais Gill summit Board timing was 30m 43s. I wonder if Saturday will hold any surprises for us??

    Not a good start to the year when even the 'one-offs' aren't filling.

    We'll get a comparison of the two serious Class 8's over the banks this year as I've been reliably informed that 60163 will be attacking them on the 8th September. Shame 60163 will have 10 on.
