    I agree I tend to sort on service type non passenger, at least for the busy locations, just to cut out all the service trains. But if you think or know a tour is running easy to track it down on RTT.

    Anyone heard from the Clan Line crew yet, as shes down to working the Surrey Hills outing tomorrow, usually they announce on social media if she's ready or not but nothing yet.

    I'm sure that something will be posted officially but I have heard unofficially that it has failed its FTR exam and will not be running. Something that's almost unheard of with Clan Line but no steam loco is immune from hiccups.

    Nothing much I can add to what has already been reported about this most unfortunate and unforeseen failure. There is a bit more detail now in the news section of MNLPS website (www.clan-line.org.uk)
    At this moment I am reminded of something one of our senior engineers said to me many moons ago "no matter how good you are, from time-to-time steam locos will fail; they always have, and always will".
    We failed it the day before, which of course is always preferable to failing en route.
    Apologies to everyone, especially to the passengers.

    Never mind. I see that the BBC website is now suggesting that the screening of 'The Apprentice' on 20th November will feature the Belmond Pullman under the 'Steam Train' banner. So we know what that means. Maybe we'll get some Bulleid Pacific footage on our screens.
