    This is another RTT quirk. The majority of moves & some tours show up as Freight. There are also 2 pages as one is for the short loop & the one she is using today is the full loop path.

    I've noticed that for DBS-operated trains, but didn't realise, until today, that some WCRC trains were reported this way too. The simple way around this is to search for ALL operators, not just "WR".

    Meanwhile, the test train has reached Carnforth again, 100 minutes early. Let's hope it was successful. According to UKsteam, Galatea is booked to work The Cumbrian Mountain Express for RTC next Wednesday (22nd). Actually, that will be a good day for North West steam, with 48151 running The Fylde Coast Express for Compass on the same day, and so deserves its own thread...

    Mine from Whalley. Apart from putting Calder instead of Ribble there was another glitch so uploaded slightly modified version.

    Thanks, I am quite happy with it. It is actually the Calder that flows under Whalley Arches, but agreed, don't know why I put that, I've put Ribble before.

    Sutherland on her way north this afternoon:



    I was waiting near the Acton Bridge Goods Loop where she was scheduled to wait for 25 minutes but as it happened she passed me on the fast line some 52 minutes early not having stopped. Luckily I was 70 minutes early and at least managed this glimpse.
