    I was up around 5 am and it was at Burnham station around 5.50 am. Mad, I know!

    Checked RTT when up and it said 14 mins early at Southall but about on time here.

    Loads of earlybirds on the station at that time, presumably off to work.

    Does anyone know the code for the Nene Valley Railway please? Trying to find a Tornado move for next weeks gala on Real Time Trains. Easily found Fletton Jn. but this is cluttered with all the ECML movements. An NVR location would make this much easier!!

    If this is a Devon & Cornwall Railways move behind a diesel, as seems likely, the path may not appear until a day or so beforehand.

    The headcode is actually one used by Southern locomotives to denote a breakdown van train so I suspect that it was someone having a bit of fun...
