    Hopefully this thread will provide a one-stop shop for future PMR tours. In any event, if one already exists, the 2015 programme is available, and from my perspective, one is highly tempting for the route (Derby-Didcot on 23 May). Presumably it will go via Water Orton, Tyseley then Solihull, which is required track in the southbound direction...

    I'm disappointed there is nothing over Shap in the programme.

    She does it three times on the WCME. Would have thought that was enough.

    You forget she will be working both for RTC on WCMEs, the Great Britain, and I believe SRPS, the latter being on Fife circles.

    There's also the possibility that 6233 will be in the Crewe "pool" for summer trips such as the Cumbrian Mountain Express. She's been a regular on these duties in recent years.

    I though 46233 was to be repainted and have maintenance in the summer insteaad of the Winter, due to the lack of trips last summer.

    I believe that was the plan then, but plans change and it could be that there is now the promise of work during the summer which it onviously would be foolish to turn down.

    There's a slight chance it could head, Tyseley's, Holyhead trip on the 20th June, as no loco has been chosen yet

    I believe 6233 is rostered for a gala that weekend. The Tyseley insider blows it again!

    I quote from a previous thread "Don't believe everything you hear in The Plough"

    Great news,
    Saturdays tour with 46233 is going ahead, and for all the lucky people that have booked to be with us, your tickets are being sent out today by 1st class post, we apologise for the delay but have been waiting for the Green light from Network Rail.
    Happy days."
