    Most of the test circuit will not present any problem for a 5 with 14 on. Diesel will be there as backup in case of problems and assist if required.

    I meant that it matched with the Early BR crest as well and will be in steam for the 50th anniversary of 1T57

    I don't think the climb from Whalley Viaduct to Wilpshire could be descibed as easy when even the local 2-car trainset has difficulty reaching 30 mph - but we'll see what Tuesday brings.

    Be a good test then! It should be OK if the rails are dry and the sanders are OK too.

    All the best to them.

    I've just been told that the test run is going to be to Carlisle, is this a curved ball thrown to get us all in the wrong place???
    Does not seem really likely as the track charges for a start will be a lot higher, and what's the point, I would have thought the normal circuit was as demanding as is needed.

    It seems that the info was a bit off the beam, the person had confused the test run with next weeks tour... #-o
