    I'm planning on visiting the ELR gala on the 18th - including the freight photocharter. Having looked at the timetable as is, there are a couple of questions that someone in the know may be able to answer.
    1. Assuming both locos on the charter will face north, which way will each of the other locos be facing?
    2. When do the loco and stock for the 09:35, first departure from Rawtenstall, get there? Is there an unpublished ECS movement from Bury before the freight charter?
    3. The photocharter is shown as terminating at Ramsbottom at 09:00 with no indication of when the loco(s) and stock move back to Bury in time to form the 10:10 freight service.
    Cheers,

    1. All locos facing north, 61264 should do so on arrival (assuming Network Rail have understood and played ball!)
    2. ECS movement before the freight charter. See below and I'll do the same if possible.
    3. Pass without looking which I'll do tomorrow in the office and find out.

    Ecs is a 07:45 ex bury. Would imagine it'll still be dark so not much good for photos hench the reason it wasn't advertised. The return move for the freight is 09:20 ex Rammy. Arrive bury 09:33

    Still no loco allox on the timetable. I need to be quite sure before I book our rail tickets especially with XC now look like being hors de combat due to flooding so we need to go via the smoke.

    Just to confirm that 61264 arrived about half an hour ago and is facing north.

    Just wondering if Sapper's booked to be doing anything, as I notice it's mentioned in the press releases but doesn't appear on the timetable?

    Yes Sapper will be used along with May. The reason it hasn't been advertised is because the plans have only just been finalised today. They will both be working top and tailed with a coach and stove r around station limits giving the ultra rare opportunity to get to Ride behind May. These will take place as and when time permits at Bury Bolton Street.
    Hope that answers your questions.
