    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.

    Southbound timings appear to have disappeared from RTT.

    Is there a rabbit off?

    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.

    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.
