    Thanks for this. No surprise - the RTC website now shows 44871 as motive power for the following Tuesday's run to Eastbourne rather than 45212 or 45305. If Mayflower doesn't put in an appearance soon, once again an ever-reliable Riley "Five" will no doubt step in to handle SD's Christmas jollies in the south as well.

    It has been now: "Activated 15/11/2018 09:20". All the usual caveats apply, of course ;-)

    Still great for Tyseley to be doing some moves on the mainline! Whether they are diesel or not

    Pretty sure the BLS confirmed these paths weren't for 45596. Not sure what exactly they are for however, possibly an RTT error. Most likely Bahamas will be making her first moves next month before returning to the KWVR.

    I suspect you mean Thurs 29th, however the same slot is showing tomorrow suggesting possibly a loaded test?

    I understand that tomorrows slot was booked in case there were any snags cropped up today, and not for loaded run so probably not going to be needed.

    70000 not my video but there seems to be a very audible knock from the motion in the second part of the video.
