    York ROC probably deserve some credit too for giving the tour a clear run that allowed so much time to be made up. It would have been all too easy to send the Bradford stopper out in front of it at Skipton then make it wait for TPE services at Leeds.

    Looking at the timings, there doesn't seem to be a water stop between Hellifield and Scarborough?

    I think BIL had a 6000 gal tender so it’s possible but doesn’t leave much safety margin. Let’s hope the fireman knows how to handle a Bulleid boiler, it’s 30 gal a minute wasted when the safety valves blow

    Judging by the sound track on @GBorehams video, the driver seems to be coping very well.

    I take that back as, from looking at the video footage, the steam sanders aren’t working which would explain a lot. Either a malfunction or someone forgot to fill the sandboxes! If it’s the latter i would have thought it would have been picked up on the FTR exam.

    Is it running back in a different path? The original shows up as cancelled on real time trains.
