I would suggest the light test will be the Crewe-Carnforth move on Monday.
Agreed, reckon the loaded will be same day?
Tuesday, now on Icons of Steam !
times up in uksteam
passing through Preston this afternoon, en-route to Carnforth.
Footage of 46100 on her Mainline test run at Low Bentham and finally Langho station where she stopped for some odd reason .
Wonderful! Many thanks Steve for an excellent video in challenging conditions. Royal Scot looked pretty steamtight as it climbed through Bentham, the opposite on approach to Langho. But the noise of the leak had gone after the restart.
Despite this typical LMS teething problem, it looked strong and healthy. A great year to come we hope, with two live green Scots at work in the North
Peter, on a dark night in Manchester as the festive season approaches
What a wonderful sight that is. Credit to everyone who's worked on her this time around.
Thanks Peter , much appreciated . She looked superb and as I kept pace with her at Settle junction the sound was fantastic just a shame I did not have a passenger to film it . Steve
from me too
this sounds like it will be a good one when the need to "Dig In" arrises
just imagine two together, oh i need a lie down now,
Royal Scot undergoing winter maintenance according to LNWR - wheels out to be re-tyred, looks to have P&V under way...
I assume their changing to winter-tyre ..
cross country will do
I know its a bit irrelevant to this thread but is there any news on 46100 royal scot when its overhaul will be completed at L.S.L. Crewe?
I see from a picture on the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust Facebook page that 46100 is currently at Bridgnorth on the SVR - speculation that this is for "running in purposes". Had to double check that I hadn't been transported back to 2015 again!
Yes it is on the SVR for running in / testing
Thanks Dave - I assume it must of arrived by road as I can't say I've seen any reports of a rail movement?
