    Is this public access? I can never find how to get to the tunnel.

    No. The first time was 71 years ago on 18/5/1948 when 46236 City of Bradford reached Plymouth during the locomotive exchange trials held that spring.

    I'm fairly sure RTT doesn't retain pages of schedules that are in the past. Not sure at what point they disappear, but there will be something that deletes a bunch from time to time.

    Any schedule over a week old drops out as part of the TSDB outage around 0200 on Sunday morning.

    Cheers, Neil

    Generally yes as far as RTT concerned (Open Time Trains data has a longer shelf life), but the booked and actual times for the Auld Reekie with Tornado in early March are still avaible as a link on UK main line steam for example. I always assumed UKMLS saved the RTT file after the tour, before RTT deleted it?

    Probably getting too techie and way off topic, so let's wait for the reports from those on board!

    No, but the farmer there is friendly if you ask nicely. Take your wellies, though. There's often rather deep mud

    Not sure if the farmer is still there. No sign of life at the property last year when we were down.
