Have been told that Tangmere is on the Sunny South Special to Weymouth tomorrow instead of 70013!
Any reason why? Hope to see it at somewhere like Barnes in the morning then Surbiton in the evening.
I was booked on the Victoria - Manchester trip with 70013 which was postponed because the loco wasn't ready. My booking was then transferred to the redated trip, which then became a trip to Sheffield instead, so I transferred my booking to this.
Don't shoot the messenger but on one of the gen groups it was said that Ollie had a problem with crown stays, probably just rumor, we will hear in the fullness of time.
I can confirm it is tangmere....
Tangmere on time @ Bedfont Lakes this morning.
Thanks Bill. Tangmere running to time at Barnes this morning. Shot of it below:
Thanks for info - should catch a glimpse near Poole soon.
Wonder if she will be allowed off Weymouth unassisted again??
Was certainly Tangmere and was certainly motoring down through Poole.
Have also heard it was a stay prob with 70013.
On train report from behind Tangy suggests a bad batch of coal is causing some problems, ie not climbing the banks as well as recently. But adding to the delight of linesiders with some black clag!
Any news of the return? Should be on Bincome about now if all is OK...
About 20 late at Bincombe.
Thanks - Tangmere was "in slot" but holding at around 20 late through Parkstone. Working well though O
Any more news on the return run?
21.23 through West Byfleet. Blowing off - not hurrying!
Looking and sounding great at Upwey, also caught it approaching Basingstoke:
Through Surbiton about 5 down. It was third time lucky for me as the last two times Tangmere has been up the main line to Waterloo I've been bowled by other trains. Fortunatly, I managed to get a shot this time. 37706 following in the path behind.
WHAT is 37706?
The great O V S Bulleid only got to 36001? With plans to go to 36005?
Class 37 Co-Co "Growler" diesel. Not a kettle
Indeed it is. Ironically, its the one that failed on Tangmere last time.
