Hi all, the Duke was seen at Chesterfield today around 15.30ish. Maybe of intrest to someone. Cheers, James
when are 44871 and 45407 coming back down from the fort, did they sneak back today? I was sure it was on uksteam but its not so it'll have to be soon though!
UKSteam had 44871 down for the second day of the Highland Bash today, along with 61994, so I assume it and 45407 are still up at Fort William.
They are coming down today.........departing FW 08.30 GMT...................from the horses mouth.....
Times had been on UK steam but then disappeared.
IIRC they and the ECS were due at Carlisle arr 2151, dep 2153 but could run early as they had about 50 minutes in Abington loop, 25 mins in Beattock loop and about 70 mins in Lockerbie loop.
Black 5s with ECS and a 37 on the rear reported on time away from Rannoch at 10.01 today.
well they passed Carstairs on time around 17.42, cheers.
Black 5s with ECS and a 37 on the rear taking water at Lockerbie still on time.
should be at Carlisle soon, currently about 5 mins down
