    I think you'll find its 46233 on both Fri and Sat.

    If you miss 46233 arriving in Crewe, the Heritage Centre is open all afternoon and into the evening (20:00ish), admission is free (although there are donation boxes) just walk in, 60009 is also on site.

    70013 and 71000 Light Engine move both on the same day and route. Could the 2 move together? what a sight that would be.

    70013 is operated by WCRC only, while 71000 is operates by DBS only as far as I'm aware. So I wouldn't expect a move together.

    From 71000's facebook page:
    "
    Unfortunatley 71000 will not be hauling this week's Torbay Express, instead it will be hauled by 70000 Britannia. A light engine movement could not be arranged to get the Duke to Bristol in time."

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone have any times for 70013's light engine movement to Bristol tomorrow? I assume it is going via Didcot?

    I hope that I'm not changing the subject but when shall Oliver Cromwell head to Crewe? Or shall she remain in Bristol for the summer.
    Have 46233 and 60009 proved that a 3rd locomotive isn't needed?
