    RTT showing Tornado's run from Belmont Down Reception to Stockton as cancelled. http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U54863/2019/01/15/advanced

    Likewise the path from Orton Mere to Belmont Down Yard, although there appears to be a new path from Orton Mere to Doncaster Roberts Rd Rp Gb instead, with the same departure time from Orton Mere.

    45596 looking and sounding wonderful at Small Heath and Wilmcote this afternoon. The plan had been to run up and down six times between SH South Jct and the limits of the avoiding line to Bordersley, but the late departure from 84E meant only two were completed before she went back on shed. Plenty of checking over was done at Stratford UA, rumours of a possible hot box but nothing confirmed. Hope everything can be ironed out before Thursday's loaded test. So pleased to see a 'proper' looking Jub back out on the mainline! DSC_6342 (2).JPG DSC_6564 (2).JPG
