    Rolling cancellations, month-by-month, I suppose. Quite a few firms are doing this. The variation is how far ahead they're looking - 4, 6, 8 or 12 weeks. I've just had an email saying that a music festival planned for early August has been cancelled. I guess the organisers were about to pay a large bill (concert hall hire?) so pulled the plug while they could still cover their liabilities. Other organisations won't want to lose the chance of some (any!) income...

    Expect announcements about WCRC May excursions around 20th April?

    Would you please stop posting such pessimistic messages on every thread? You might be right, you might be wrong. Nobody knows at this point and continued speculation does nobody any good.

    The joy of being a pessimist. As ever the glass is half empty. <BJ>

    I dont think comments like this help us as we look to the future of our hobby and the well being of the industry.
    Please lets be optimistic at this time. West Coast provide a fantastic service with the Jacobite while some of us like nothing better than spending time up in the Highlands.

    You really haven't a clue - give it a break.

    Next time, use capital letters to really emphasise your point. After all, IF YOU SHOUT LOUDER IT MAKES YOU MORE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!
