    That is correct, it does not show for wrong line or as we called it S.I.M.B.I.D.S (Simplified bi directional signaling.
    Apparently there was a broken rail on the down line.
    I was at Dunbridge for the return workings and saw two Voyagers and a Southbound intermodal.

    Timings for Sunday's first Waverley of the season (steam hauled throughout per the RTC website) are on RTT:

    A slow journey outward - 5 hrs 10 mins - with 22 mins in Kirkstall Down Loop and 63 mins in Hellifield Goods Loops. The return is quicker, at 4 hrs 19 mins, despite going via Selby with a reversal there, presumably because of electrification works between Colton and Church Fenton.

    I imagine that the reversal will require a diesel, but will this tag along all day or could it just be sent out from York in the evening?

    This is of academic interest only, of course, as we'll all be watching the Euros final, won't we?!

    Looking at those times there are approx 15 and 20 minute stops at Crewe in both directions, if that's for water then unless the hydrant has been attended to and the leaks cured and the pressure had been raised then there's little chance of a decent fill in those times.

    The water stops will be the stops at signals North of Rugby in both directions. The stops at Crewe will be pathing stops.

    There is a diesel move York-Hellifield following the outbound Waverley. The diesel will presumably either attach there or wait for the return.

    Just like to ask about the Welsh mountaineer 20.7.21 is this tour due to go ahead are RTT timings out yet if so does anyone know on nat pres? I'm just asking this for 2 reasons 1 that Wales are not going to ease restrictions fully by the 20 July by the looks of it, and 2 with the Welsh mountaineer having less coaches on the train it could have the same problems as the R.T.C. Tynesider tour had with seating arrangements on board the W.M. tour.

    My take on the Cheshireman yesterday, filmed at Apsley, Rugby, Beeston and Bushey. Fantastic sunshine all day!

    Only tour I can see from Telford is the Northern Belle with Lizzie which is the week after, possibly a mistype of the date into the system?
