    Several people have already commented upon the likely motive power however have you thought of putting these questions to your tour operator?

    If it is not listed as a pick-up/drop off on your E-ticket it will be an operational stop.

    If you look at the RTC web site you will see that Doncaster is not listed as a pick up point. Therefore it's an operational stop only.

    Just wondering about going all the way via Clitheroe Blackburn and Preston on the way back, is Lizzie out of gauge for Platform 1 at Carnforth?

    That’s the only reason I can think of for it. Usually they are happy with going tender first to Settle Jn.
