    What stock will the test run be with? Just the Pullmans from Stewart's Lane?

    I believe it will be with the Pullmans from Victoria. Of course, it will not be carrying passengers as it is not a Belmond run and just for crew/TOC/MNLPS purposes.

    I've noticed that the Crewe-Chester turns for LSL are in for tomorrow. Are we expecting Braunton or Royal Scot tomorrow?

    Loco has moved on to Chester. All remaining paths have been noted as cancelled “due to a problem with a steam loco”.

    Photos on Facebook show 34046 with its fireman's side connecting rod removed, and possibly the valve spindle disconnected from the combination lever. Obviously, being Facebook, the resolution is so poor that it's not easy to see what's going on.
