    D9551 now not showing on ELR web site. Also, the roster page has 34092 down for the weekend, with no mention of 813. Anyone able to clarify what is planned to be running for this event now?

    ELR site still listing 6990 + 34092 for the weekend, no mention of 813. The roster page is not well maintained and often incorrect in my (humble) view.

    Roster page on this occasion is wrong according to a very reliable source.

    Any idea what the loco allocations will be? What's pulling the first departure from Bury tomorrow?

    Many thanks,
    Matt
