    No report on Braunton since it’s move to Norton F. Anyone know if it has run?

    Thanks for the info. The diesel leg appears to have been diverted via Copy Pit, presumably to Carnforth. Do you know what is working the steam leg?

    I understand it will be the 8F. Yes diversion info I had passed on was "Wakefield Kirkgate, Healey Mills, Brighouse, Hebden Bridge and Blackburn to Carnforth"

    Braunton was held at Taunton for 70 mins.
    http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U10928/2018/10/10/advanced

    From NR: ''Urgent repairs to the track between Taunton and Bristol Temple Meads causing disruption to trains between these stations.
    Trains may be delayed by up to 45 minutes or diverted via Westbury. Disruption is expected until 11:00.”

    Braunton ran via Bridgwater but didn't stop at Bristol TM as intended . <BJ>

    I'm wondering why it went tender first. The associated speed limit can't have helped fitting it on part of the Brighton main line.

    There is no turntable at the Bluebell (yet) so it had to be tender first either to or from East Grinstead. Locomotives on the Bluebell mostly face north, so tender first southbound was probably predictable.

    I hadn't realised they still don't have a turntable. One would think it would have become higher priority once they gave up on trying to fit in a triangle at Horsted Keynes.
