    Which is one of the reasons why I have stopped doing mainline trips. There is now effectively a fairly small list of 'core' steam routes, and so little steam goes anywhere else. I totally understand why this is, but it is a pity.

    Does anyone know what is hauling the outbound leg of Saturday's trip to Newcastle? Steam Dreams site just says "diesel or electric". Deltic possibly?

    My camera doesn't cope too well with low light levels but here's one of my photos from last night at Grantham.

    The return ECS from Horsham had a water stop at Warnham when I looked the other day, it’s now changed to back via Brighton main line.

    Indeed, and it must be quite uncommon for a water stop to take place even before passengers are embarked, at Warnham on the way down!

    That is not quite the case, steam always was used from Southend and back until approx 10 years ago then it was steam out and diesel and return now sadly its diesel out and back from Southend which destroys all interest for many folks.
