    If she's running, then why are RHM saying on here that she is no longer attending the NNR gala? Or has it all changed?............................................. all I know this is turning out to be one crazy week for LE moves given yesterday with 45231!!!!!

    As for RTT, doesn't mean she's moving until it activates......................................................................... please don't shoot the messenger, All I did was quote from another source................................................................ we shall see come tomorrow............................................................

    Alton-Farnham is supposed to be closed until Friday.
    But when I left Ropley at 1627 behind 45379 towards Alresford, Tornado and support coach were in the up platform.Maybe they are lifting the block to let it through?

    That's the same link I posted on the NNR gala thread. But it doesn't mean they can't run a non service train from Alton to Farnham. Does anyone know what's happening with the oil tankers going to and from Holybourne?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link. Looking at the timings there isn't any reason why 60163 can't attend the gala on Saturday and Sunday. But looking at their web site 60163 isn't attending the gala?

    The usual LMS drain cock problem by the looks of it.

    Love the usual, over hyped comments about it being unhealthy and not being able to get going again if it stopped. If there had been a problem with the loco it wouldnt have made it that far south!
