    Does anyone know why she was 14 minutes down at Clapham? RTT reports a RT leaving Victoria (though it didn't show her leaving until it was reporting the late running at Clapham).
    8 minutes made up by Feltham, she was running at a reasonable speed through the station, however, I suspect she was about to encounter double yellows as there was a Windsor stopper only 3 minutes ahead.

    My efforts from Merstham Tunnel this afternoon, video to follow. It was nice to see the Scot on the Surrey Hills circuit, having missed the first run in July.

    Well, looking out of the support coach. That used to be an advantage of photographing the VSOE/Belmond Pullman over the years, no heads sticking out.

    Cheers, Neil

    OK by the look of it but the timings are very slack with a lot of recovery time it appears. More often than not whatever I see hauling it manages to run down the preceding Hampton Court local by Richmond and then has a bit of a crawl to Hampton Court Junction. Despite a late start it was only a few minutes down at Virginia Water
