    No sign of any light engine moves at Victoria or Windsor, so safe to assume there'll be a diesel on the back the whole day.

    There was doubt expressed about the viability of that one on here some time back, gauging issues?

    No run round loops at Windsor as I recall, so unless that changed it will need to be T&T.

    'Uksteam' site still shows Saturday's trip as steam-hauled. What a shame that 'Galatea' is to be pushed round the Surrey hills - it would have made a fine run.

    You can't go in and out of Windsor without having a diesel at the other end. It's simple really. No run round facility. No turntable and no triangle nearby.

    Has something happened to these trips? They have been removed from the SD bookings page and they weren't full up yesterday. It's a bit odd that they have been taken down. They usually keep the booking option up until the day of the trip.
