    From RTT it looks like SG was held approaching Settle Jn whilst the late running NT to Carlisle cleared Horton in R. If ever a man needed an incentive to run hard . . . A report from the train could be interesting as 9L at SJn was cut to 5L at Blea Moor. Time of around 21 mins from a slow? start.

    I was only going to pop down to Edge Hill this morning, but ended up following it to Helwith Bridge. Scots Guardsman looked and sounded superb. Video to follow shortly.

    My contribution, Newsholme (only 3 of us at this usually populous place, Covid related?:D Think not, early start, warm day more likely!), then against the light at Long Preston to try and get some exhaust. Early into Hellifield, late away. P1130082.JPG P1130083.JPG

    Nice shot with Pendle Hill in the background.
    An old friend of mine always wanted a shot of 'Lord Nelson' at that location. 'Nelson & Pendle'!

    Locals will understand! ;)

    Thanks for the excellent photos (as usual) and the much appreciated (by me) crew details. It was good to see that a couple of the less frequently appearing names, Chris Holmes and Peter Kirk, were back plying their trade amongst the Cumbrian fells - and didn't they do well!

    Reported on Railcam that 46115 has been failed and CME left CNF diesel-hauled.
