    Looking at the timings it will run round at Salisbury and depart tender first via Chandlers Ford. The other clue that 60163 is running tender first is the slow timings and number of pathing stops.
    ( Remember that RTT adds estimated timings for locations with are conditional timings points or only timing points for trains calling at that location. Laverstock North and South Jns are only quoted in TPS/TSDB schedules for trains using Laverstock Curve.)

    Cheers, Neil

    Note from RTT that the trailing load is shown as 715 tonnes. Is there also more ECS or is that just a typo or the max permissible load?

    Also seems to be reversing at Salisbury so will Tornado be leading the rake from there?

    From WNXX forum: RTT displays the tonnage which is the *maximum* allowed for the route not the actual weight of the train.
