    Looking forward to seeing the first steam on Martin Mill Bank for a very long time, especially as it's Clan Line:)

    No times yet but hope to see her arrive at Canterbury first.

    UKRailtours website states confirmed departure time from Victoria as 10:43. Still listing approximate arrival back at 20:00. No times on RTT though

    The must do for me is the old GA route Dover - Tonbridge, it may well be possible to race it from Martin Mill? I must look up the weather forecast, at present I'm sitting under a cloudless sky and 30C in Majorca but I won't be expecting that. Fly back to reality tomorrow then up early for this, my wife thinks I'm mad.

    Timings are now complete - as shown in the previous post - and will be appearing via the 'usual channels' over the next couple of hours or so. The unforeseen delay, and associated issues, are outside the control of UKR or the MNLPS.

    It is a loop just west of Headcorn and it's pathing stop, there is no W stop on the outward run and only at Dover Priory on the return.

    Looked like Wayne when he passed me at Martin Mill Bank, Limited video shot as several members of the crew were filming at my favourite spot on the footpath in the middle of nowhere up from Coldblow crossing.

    Clan Line 'cruising' up Martin Mill Bank with 13!!
