    I think, if memory serves me correctly that 6233 last run up Diggle was March 2002? If I'm wrong please correct me!

    I'll be on the overbridge at Midge Hill between Mossley & Greenfield tomorrow, meaning a early start from Chester.

    Thanks for the update Matt, i just had a short run out to Goostrey. Noticed on UK steam a hort stop in the loop at Chelford so assumed that it was to let something past. So there was me, waiting for this other train to come first, camera all covered up, raining as usual, then saw this single light sneaking towards me. **** **** ****, hence my clip on YouTube is rather short. ](*,) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VskIrhL4NY

    That is very reassuring news, and must be a huge relief to RTC and everyone involved.
