    Which may explain why there's nothing on RTT for the Surrey Hills circuits next Thursday. The SD Website states that :"In order to avoid overcrowding and incidents of trespass we have been asked not to publish the timetable of when the train will be passing through specific locations."

    Carrying a headboard for The Flying Scotsman can only add to the confusion.

    As the support coach was moved up to Carnforth from ELR behind 45407 (IIRC) one can only assume that either WCR or NRM now have use of it.

    After waiting for 90 minutes at Hartford Junction, 60103 Flying Scotsman resumes its journey south, passing through Hartford station on time.
