    That is an offer I can’t refuse. I will send you a PM on Monday (we don’t want others turning up to share MY wave.)

    Been a bit of changes for the RTC Christmas program.

    The Easterling on 2nd October due to be hauled by Tornado is now cancelled - no longer on the website

    Tornado is doing a few of the trips Duchess of Sutherland was due to do, but equally now it seems Black 5 44871 will be coming down south to help out, in some cases covering for Duchess where Tornado cannot, in other cases, covering for trips Tornado was due to do, for example the Cheshireman on 20th November was Tornado, but is now 44871 (a nice change given the route).

    Despite this a couple of trips still say Duchess is hauling them, including one that Tornado was doing (confused?), and it looks like the two Christmas White Roses will have Tornado on one leg and "a steam locomotive" on the return (probably implying 44871)

    The Gloucester and Cardiff trip Nov 23 I thought was Tornado originally, now implies Duchess out Tornado back. Of course could be a cut and paste error although the picture in use is now the Duchess and I am sure it was Tornado before.
    I assume my favourite Black 5 will need some decent rear end assistance to get a full length train up Camden Bank.

    Didn't notice that, again could be a copy paste error but the fact the image is now Duchess is interesting.

    When did a Stanier Class 5 last take a train out of Euston? And what are the odds for a diesel helping?

    45305 did it on 6th November 2010, but only load 6 so no diesel.

    44871 and 45407 have worked together out of Euston. Did 44767 haul a tour from there as well, or is it only St Pancras it's visited?

    Poor shot of the two climbing Camden Bank Nov 30 2013 also en route to Chester I think. I seem to remember a diesel on the back of this one.

    Rait day out on the cumbrian coast express today with 46115 to make up for missing out on the A1ST Caledonian tour, some nice fast running from Preston to Carlisle on the 86 Les Ross and even better run round the cumbrian coast furness line on the old sections of pand rail clickety clacking along. Many thanks to R.T.C. for another great day out in Cumbria. (No pics to post this time lads)

    Great image as always Shep. Appreciate the effort made to produce these images. When was the last time a pacific went on the Cumbrian Coast?
