    Thanks for the heads up. I'd already booked on the Adventurer tomorrow and a day with 813 is a bonus. :)

    Just a reminder for any readers that tomorrow and thursday are 6960's planned final runs of the current boiler ticket.
    It's doing the Adventurer/Sightseer excursion trains both days (11.00 ex-BH and 13.00 ex KR).

    And all done, the last trip leaving Hampton Loade at 16:45 for Bridgnorth, looking and sounding nothing like a loco ready for overhaul.

    I heard a reference to that but that might have not been anything more than a rumour/guess.
