Another shot from Shap Wells on the 8th.
Any idea what loco is doing the WCME this Saturday please?
Just recieved my E Ticket for this Saturday, confirmed as 35018. Was hoping for something of Midland region, but hey ho.
Second time lucky! Booked last year specifically only to have it fail on arrival at Carnforth...
Thanks for the info
Well you're getting something superior instead.
Please refer to #145, perhaps best not to be too confident until after the trip. I am sure all will be fine (this time) and I am disappointed not to be travelling behind BIL. I opted for The Cotton Mill Express but am sure that Mr Shireman will give us a full account of BIL's performance.
Merchant 18. What's not to like? A Class 8 is useful given the conditions up north currently.
Hold your hand out you naughty boy!...
As it’s 35018 we have now booked. 4 am start! Ah well let’s hope it’s good
Southbound timings appear to have disappeared from RTT.
Is there a rabbit off?
There was flooding in the Settle area earlier in the week
Everything else has run tonight according to RTT, and the list for other trains tomorrow is not appended in any way. It's not showing up SB over Shap.
Something of class 1 origin going via York from Carlisle...
That will be the Peterborough tour which is steam worked from Hellifield IIRC and returns south via the Tyne Valley.
The "Spirit of the Lakes" from Peterborough. Not via Hellifield, it goes Peterborough>Doncaster>Wakefield>Hebden Bridge>Copy Pit>Blackburn>Preston (change to steam - 46115(?) and over Shap to Carlisle, then diesel via Tyne Valley back to Peterborough.
No changes to the return times that anyone from RTC are aware of. Time will tell.
Is this what you're after? <BJ>
