    Have been told that Tangmere is on the Sunny South Special to Weymouth tomorrow instead of 70013!

    Oh poo!

    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.

    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!

    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?

    Indeed it is. Ironically, its the one that failed on Tangmere last time.
