    1T50, 1T51, 1T52 & 1T53. They look like regular Sunday timetabled services: "Runs SuO between 09/12/2018 to 12/05/2019". Slow out via Shirley, presumably tender-first, then fast (max. 60 mph, suitable for a Hall) back via Dorridge. Shown as "Q" workings, i.e. runs as required, like a freight. Doesn't mean there will be a steam Shakespeare Express this Sunday, but great to see that VT have a slot in the national timetable.

    It's just a path in the system. I expect if Vintage Trains stick to the same times then the path will change operators.

    no one knows . that path I think is a standard TYS path for the Shakespeare (the one for sunday)

    RTT doesn't have a selection code for VT yet, however a broad search shows a code does exist (if that makes sense)

    I've had confirmation from Ingrow regarding the dates for 45596's test runs.

    Bahamas is scheduled for initial tests including a run to Stratford-Upon-Avon on Tuesday 15th along with a loaded test run on Thursday 17th.

    Hope this helps,
    Adam T.

    I don't think it's necessary to post here and in the Light Engine / Test Runs thread, is it? We've agreed what the "mystery" Sunday afternoon paths in RTT are probably for. Let's keep news of 45596's tests to the test-runs thread. Ta.

    Disagree.
    I posted here because it contradicts an earlier post in this thread which indicated the loaded run on 17th Jan was going to Stratford. It now looks as if it’s going Leicester.
    If, like me, you are considering going out to see it, it does help if you know which part of the country to head for!
