Great to see 60103 working hard instead of being a show pony.

My footage of yesterday's Scotsman doings. Filmed at Culham and Jackdaws Bridge, on the climb up Sapperton Bank. Enjoy!
Have the timings for Saturday's White Rose to York been released yet?
Or are they embargoed due to it being Scotsman?
Not that I've seen. They tend to come out at the last minute so I wouldn't expect to see anything until tomorrow.
Might these be the timings you're after?
Looks spot on, thanks!
Just had a Email off R.T.C. letting all travellers know on the Edinburgh flyer tomorrow that Channel 5 are filming a documentary on board tomorrow the edinburgh flyer observing how social distancing is carried out on board charter trains and it's also been filmed by drones for the programme to be aired later this year apparently R.T.C. staff are very pleased their going to be filmed for the 1st time for T.V. I'm travelling on this tour tomorrow in coach C premier dining originally I was going to be doing the Dec 21 2020 Edinburgh xmas market but transferred my booking to this years tour originally for March but redated for June 19.
60163 looking as impressive as ever passing the Cramlington Railcam with 13+Class 47 Tailgunner.
Scotsman passing Hadley Wood this morning:
Doesn't seem to have left Tallington Jn. Was showing +35 approaching and no time for Stoke Jn.
Now showing +67 at Stoke Jn.
In no hurry to get to York, it seems. Such is what can happen on the ECML
Apparently ran short of steam and needed to stop to build up pressure.
With load 12 and a diesel return thought they'd have had a Tailgunner. For once one would have been useful.
Surprised they didn't keep on the rear / have it running behind for that reason. But alas, it was sitting in Hornsey on my train back from Hadley Wood
A very lacklustre departure from the water stop at Holme. Was hoping for something a tad more spirited.
In Claypole loop waiting for the Leeds to pass, and possibly the Bradford.
Has been held. 15 to the Edinburgh so should be let out - but wasn't. 20 min gap after to next York. Let out at 1209 after York Service.
Thought I'd try somewhere different but the weeds were a bit too tall for my liking and the light was rubbish anyway. 60103 pootling away from the Holme water stop.
Hardly charging past Bullpit Lanc LC Railcam.
At just under 5 hours for 125 miles to Carlton Loop not the most exhilarating of runs. Still I suspect most will be happy as it is FS.
