    Anybody know if this is happening today ?
    I see the times on uksteam say it's due at Reading 13.28. But it has an hour stop at Willesden SW 11.24 to 12.24 wonder if that is correct.
    Thinking about popping out from work at lunchtime around 1.00pm & seeing if it turns up.

    If you look at the times, it has a lot of stops, Willesden 1hr, Reading 15min, Didcot 5min, Oxford 1hr, Fenny Compton 1hr, Leamington 8mins, Tyseley 1.1/4hrs, so the schedule could be right. Probably go to Tilehurst & hope for the best. Might be best to get there early. Saw it on its up trip when it ran to schedule.

    Hmmm. A bit too early for me. Can't get out of work until at least 16:00. I might make it if she runs 90 mins late, I suppose...

    Took a day off work today saw 60019 with both tenders + coach at Aldersot I dropped down to Ash to find

    a guy with a tripod waiting for it to go to Guildford having advising him it at gone direct to Woking yard,I carried

    on to Southall to see both 60019 just going to the depot whilst 6233 passed through both exchanging whistles.

    Caught up with 6233 at Hinksey ( about 20 mins early) after 1 hour 20 mins she continued ( on time) towards Banbury.

    Hope she gets back to Butterley on time.

    Regards

    Was 60019 on time? If so I only just missed her on my way into work as I pass over the Alton-Aldershot line.

    A few minutes down but working well,

    The Tenders were separated at South West Sidings . when they arrived at Southall the spare was behind the

    support coach which made it easier to shunt into the depot.

    Bit late, got caught out by the move running 45 early into Tyseley so had to make a mad dash to Small Heath, even then it was 40 up after watering, bit of a rubbish effort since plan a went out the window: http://david1984.fotopic.net/p59369833.html
