    Aren't they the regular paths that are in the system for use as required?

    They're entered as STP and not the usual WTT entries. We'll see if anything happens.

    While this is a good photo, I can't give it a "like" as I feel sad to see BIL go back North. Please can we have her down here on SR metals again soon - and keep for a bit longer?

    It's greed, oop'ere we don't go rambling on "can we have Clan Line" no, oop 'ere we've got BIL (rescued and refurbed) and we're satisfied. After all, BIL is 'tuned' for our northern hills.:D



    That's the way to go up Shap (take note at 2 min. 10 secs.

    Well, Gentlemen, you've made your point! Perhaps a 600+ mile round trip is in order before too long, especially as, unlike its forays recent down here, 35018 is allowed to run up and down the Northern hills without rear end assistance.

    Point taken about Clan Line, but I have a special soft spot for 35018 because when I visited Woodham's Barry as a mere youth in 1974, it was the most conveniently positioned MN for a picture (see above)

    Not sure what this is? There is a prior move from York NRM to Holgate Sidings timed at 60 mph.
    This would imply steam, possibly Alberta (or whoever/whatever she is!), but the move to Carnforth is shown at 75mph. The headcode is OZ62 which adds to the intrigue. Any knowledge or suggestions please?

    Isn't the OZ code light engine on its own?

    Yes. Looking at it again the move from the NRM to Holgate is obviously Tornado after servicing. The diesel will have taken the stock to Holgate then Tornado will reverse the train back into York minus diesel. The diesel will then go back home alone to Carnforth.
