    Is it both 44871 & 45407, or is 45407 not finished from winter maintenance?

    There's also a path from Bury to Carnforth early Friday morning followed by Carnforth to York soon after, I'm told that 5407 is involved.

    I know, social responsibility, two metre separation etc; but I wonder how many supermarket car parks overlook the WCML? ( Not that supermarkets will be pleasant places tomorrow as the next round of headless chicken hoarding starts.)

    Cheers, Neil

    PS the only good use for a headless chicken is in a casserole, said as a vegetarian!

    You'll have to think of other excercise regimes today. Just looked at RTT and seen this: "This service was cancelled due to a problem with a steam locomotive (ME)."
