    How was Bahamas turned for the mainline tours it has done recently over the S&C?

    After the trip north on the 9/2/2019 she was turned at Engine Shed Jnc in Leeds.
    After the trip on the 16/2/2019 she didn’t need turning as arrived back ‘the right way’, same again after this years trip.

    When we turned the 4F on the turntable on the 12/10/20, we had to have explicit permission due to restrictions on the road to the turntable, plus half water / half coal.

    Thanks Simon. Was she turned as part of the tour movement, or sent out on her own later?

    Also: Looks like she went via Bentham this evening, os the line must be open again.

    Why is number 9 going into storage at 10A until J.C. decides what to do with her? has his museum on his farm been built at Fife yet?

    Could it be Mr Smith's new Jinty (delivered to Baron Street from Heywood a week or so back)?

    45mph could be one clue and using the scenic route another.

    I thought no. 9 was staying at the ELR for a few runs until the end of her ticket? Obviously all up in the air for the next couple of months, at least.

    I wonder whether its linked to his interests in the Wensleydale Railway?

    Is eleven minutes for the reversal at Blackburn, including running round, a bit tight?

    Is there any need to run round if the Jinty is in steam, unless it's a rods off move?

    As ever with West Coast, I think we have to play the let’s wait and see card. A mainline move involving a Jinty could be interesting though. (Does anyone know how the nickname ‘Jinty’ came about?)

    Equally might be T&T'ed. Is said Jinty main line registered then?

    Wouldn't be the first time in preservation though.
