    Hi

    5029 Nunney Castle is to be moved tomorrow back to Tyseley by WCRC to my knowledge.

    That's good news. Anyone know if the same timings will be used as planned for Tuesday?

    Re: Nunney Castle 0Z27 to Tyseley

    So out of interest, does anyone know when it will be leaving Paignton? I saw that it was in light steam today outside Paignton loco sheds at about 4 o clock. I've looked on the Nunney Website but can't seem to find anything.

    My guess is that she will use the same times as she was ment to the other day, usually they just transfer the times. Just my guess though.

    Good news indeed. It was great having you visit guys. You can be proud of a magnificent loco. If you happen to run a hot box near Newton Abbot again (and I don't wish one on you in the slightest) you know where to come - for a month or so!! \:D/ Good luck back on the big railway.

    Re: Nunney Castle 0Z27 to Tyseley

    I don't think a certain person at Tyseley would be too happy at possibly having to pull the tour due to loco unavailibility and no reasonable explanation offered, poor showing by them leaving the 5029 lads, Tyseley and the tour passengers in the dark like that.

    Given that tommorow (14th) is scheduled for the 2 locos and stock moving to Fort William for the Jacobite, does WCR have enough crews to do that run (which is a 16 hour trip) and also provide a crew to move Nunney back?

    But how many of the WCRC drivers sign both the route Nunney will take to get back to Tyseley and the route up to FW?

    I'm told that Nunney Castle is now due to return to Tyseley Thursday 14 May in the same path as Tuesday.

    Sorry no recent updates at uksteam.info due to major disk failure. Hopefully back in action sometime tomorrow.

    That's good, but does anyone know what the path timings are. I can't find them anywhere! #-o

    If anyone sees it leave Paignton tomorrow (or en route, between there and Bristol), would it be ok to drop me a a quick text please? Alternatively, perhaps a quick post on this forum?

    I'm travelling to Cardiff tomorrow for a meeting, but may well break my journey at Bristol Temple Meads, to hopefully see 5029 + support coach go through!

    Any feedback on the locos progress would be much appreciated, as I will have people with me.

    PM for Mobile Number.

    Many, many thanks in advance....

    Phil =P~

    You beat me to it! She was off P+D metals at exactly 8:00. Hopefully we'll see her back again soon though... =P~

    Thanks for that and on time also to the timings on UK Steam, hope to see her again later, weather permitting.
