    I couldn’t see a thread for this. These are the first offerings from Ian Riley in conjunction with WCRC. There are some times on RTT for the first one, I’d hoped that it might have sneaked through Darwen on its way back to Man Vic but alas not. I’m on the 8th, I wonder which pair of 5s will be running.

    Indeed! Is it really impossible to get a path an hour later out of Manchester? The only possible virtue of the long wait would be a chance of being let out early if there is an unexpected gap between other trains.

    Edit: Inserted missing word "it".

    Well that's decided it for us from down here in South Wales. Shame. Looked good on paper and close to my 70th.

    I’ve put the paper hats back in the box and cancelled the cake. We’ll have to find something else to do for an hour and a half in Carnforth loop - it was probably a bit early for cake anyway! PS Happy Birthday!

    Never too early for cake!!! - or beer. Back in the day we had a pint at 0615 leaving Euston for Glasgow behind the Duchess, Hamilton that is, as we'd promised Mel Chamberlain if he got a Duchess out of Euston we'd drink it away from the platform!! Those were the days.....and appropriately that one was on St Andrews' Day 1996. Great weekend that.
