    Well the only 2 other operational locos at GCR not booked for turns are the ivatt 2 and the jinty.

    My money's on the ivatt as the jinty was mentioned as being station pilot at Loughborough

    I'm going to guess that there will be freight runs leaving Loughborough...

    10:35 behind the 8F
    12:05 behind the loco that replaces 6990
    14:50 behind the 8F

    That's if the time table follows the same pattern of running to Swithland and holding while the service train passes,

    These are just my educated guesses...

    I would have thought that the two 9F's would be good candidates for freight trains.

    The 8f will take an up freight between 10.10 and 11.10
    43106 will take the returning Down freight.
    '6990' up 11.40-12.40
    92212 down return
    8f up 14.25-15.25
    and 43105 returning it back

    This is just from looking at the public timetable to see where locos vanish and reappear at different points or have unusually long lay overs. There could be more

    Also, 92212 does nothing from when it returns the freight (around 13.00 I would say) till 15.00
    '92220' nothing past 12.45.
    Quite easy to squeeze in a freight trip with the both at about 13.10

    Reading the GCR website I came across this...

    http://www.gcrailway.co.uk/on-train-dining-services/saturday-luncheon-dining-train/

    Looks like there'a Dinning train on the 13th leaving Loughborough at 13:15 and returning for about 2:47. I bet 92220 is on that one.

    As the Black 5 takes the C set at 12:50 arriving at Rothley Brook at 13:25 and it is the next loco to bring it back (along with the 8F) I don't think there's a path for a loco to run down with a freight (unless it's top and tailed at around 16:20)

    The 1;15 dining train has been cancelled on the 13th, there is a Pullman Wedding train throughout the day making 3 return trips from 13;20 - 19;10

    Is there likely to be a timetable-roster available for this weekend's Model Railway event?

    Many thanks

    Locos for the Model event are the two 9F's plus 43106. (Plus a DMU) Timetable is a 45 minute interval service starting from Loughborough at 10.00am/ Leicester North 10.45 all three days.
