    Rail advert? Do you mean Rail Advent? I’d trust the words of our members over what is posted there...

    35018 is in steam, next to 46115, which is also in steam.

    So one can assume 46115 round the coast and BIL to the seaside, with Alberta along for the ride coming back.

    Ah, the dreaded leaf fall season approaches and rural lines are the tricky parts of the network.

    35018 got away but I overtook it coming into Low Bentham and it couldn’t keep its feet so what it’ll do at High Bentham I don’t know.

    Not unusual. That stretch of line is a notorious "dead zone" for RTT info. It WILL magically appear at Settle Junction before too long. (Says he hopefully with coat, hat and gloves ready to don to go out and see her later on!).

    I wonder at what stage something is dispatched from Carnforth to give her a shove up the backside!

    From what I can hear up on Clapham Moor, sounds like it's slipped to a stand again, in exactly the same place that it did 3 years ago...

    Reached Hellifield. Hope the water is flowing fast so once filled she can make up a bit of time?

    You first ask how it is that a train can take five hours to cross the country from west to east, albeit steam and with pick up and water stops. Then you spot that over an hour has been made up and the chances are that it'll be right time into Scarborough. That feels to me like recovery time, big time, but also the past experience of a little used route in the 'damp and slippery' season.
