    I am very glad I am not on this. What a trundle. I doubt if it will reach 60 mph all day

    As far as I am aware Wayne you are correct. You solved the problem at Sherborne by carefully dropping her back which is the way it normally solved the problem in the days of steam. And yes it happened then a fair few times in my experience

    Might be worth considering the equally worthy comment made by @gricerdon at #70. Risks are plentiful without choosing to take avoidable ones.

    No, for me Shap with steam is probably the main reason for going

    Yes but it's being ignored. RTC should have limited the train to max length 10 or even 9 including support coach and not gone for maximum sales. What they did is irresponsible and might jeopardize future steam operation over Shap

    I hope Les Fishburn took the names of the offenders so that they can be banned from all future RTC trips

    Another completely over the top piece of work by NR. When will their out of control spending be stopped?

    I doubt if a path can be found but we will see. Not on it but an easy chase by train if it runs.

  10. gricerdon liked Gladiator 5076's post in the thread The Bognor Belle, 21/10/17..

    What part of the title is unappealing Bognor or Belle? The Southall set usually has a list one Pullman liveried coach so Belle just about works. Bognor may not be the greatest South Coast resort but the comment seems unduly harsh.

    And pigs might fly. I am surprised a path can be found up the Arun valley let alone Wimbledon
