    Looking at the opentraintimes map, they appear to be sat on the DFL at Lancaster, something happened?

    Edit: Nevermind on the move again

    Preston was interesting, as the train dispatchers had there work cut out trying to keep back all passengers on platform 3, with plenty of shouting ! thankfully the road was set to green and and the Scot was opened up nicely in front of the unsuspecting commuters who all in turn rushed to get out their phones out ! Video to follow.

    Good to see 46100 running without a headboard for a change.

    Wonder it carrying one would be a potential safety issue in strong wind (especially the Saphos one!!!)???

    The White Rose, Shrewsbury - York 7 March 2020.
    According to the Saphos website this train is fully booked, but Railway Herald has it down as cancelled. Can anyone confirm?

    There is a White Rose with UK Railtours on the RH on the same date which is cancelled. Have a closer look at the RH site, it is displaying the Saphos job correctly.
