    If true, I'm surprised how little mention this has had; has anyone seen or heard anything else, anywhere else relating to this?

    Information, including timings, forwarded by the WLA (Western Locomotion Association).

    If it is necessary to cancel the test run, an alternate date has been set. <BJ>

    With GBRf's involvement I suspect a low profile is being made until a successful test run is confirmed.

    Video on YouTube of it arriving back at SVR OK, so hopefully a successful test.

    This is the Vid and fingers crossed all seems to have gone well.
    (Edit) just had a message from my mate who’s a little bit more connected with those on the mainline.
    He hasn’t had anyone message him with anything negative. It’s all looking good. :)
