According to an email off RYTC, Lizzie is down for this weekends train to Carlisle
Got my tickets today we are pleased to announce that the pennine L.T.D. will be part hauled by a vintage diesel from Norwich to hellifield and from hellifield to carlisle either by 6201 or 45690 can anyone confirm which loco it will be hauling the steam leg of the pennine L.T.D. will the train be picking up passengers at Doncaster or is that just a Op stop on R.T.T.
@Davo here is your answer
Several people have already commented upon the likely motive power however have you thought of putting these questions to your tour operator?
You've answered your own question.
Alright anyhow ive looked on mainline steam tours index updated on 21st may its advertised as 6201 but i was wondering what the stop at doncaster is for on platform 8 anyone
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.
Crew change perchance ?
Lizzie seems to be going the long way round back to Carnforth?
Lizzie at Hellifield goods loop waiting for the class 47s to come off.
Running with a little helper on the rear I notice from the Horton webcam.
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.
I wondered why she took the long drag like butter. anyhow my 1st time ive rode behind her and enjoyed the expirience in coach G what a powerful loco!!!
25/05/2019 - 6201 "Princess Elizabeth" passing Langcliffe on The Pennine Limited heading for Carlisle.
Watching Kirkby Stephen Railcam - really slow going with 11+Class 47. Anyone on board know why????
Certainly looked to be struggling
