    Thanks for that. Do you know if 6233 is at Butterley at the moment and if so any idea when 6233 will move down to Southall? Thanks.

    Update - looks like 6233 will move down to Southall on Thurs 10th - an evening move leaving Butterley at 19.03 going via Oakham & Corby onto the MML.

    Looking forward to the valentines white rose tour and introducing my brother who is autistic to his 1st ride 6233 behind duchess of Sutherland to York from Peterborough, And to see 6233 in steam seen as though my brother bought my dad hornby 00 46232 county of montrose for Xmas and my dad got 46245 city of london last december also. 2020 V.W.R. was excellent with 6233 down 60009 up on its 2nd to last swan song.

    Looks like it’s not returning via ECML as still advertised on the website. Now via Lincoln.

    New times for the outbound run have appeared.

    Route now via Selby where the diesel hauls the train to York to save a turning move at York.

    I would imagine two diesels from Peterborough as you need a second to take the ECS back to Acton Lane. Sending the LE to Peterborough would save the diesel on the back having to run round in the yard at Peterborough and if it did do a run round you would still need to send a LE diesel to the Cross anyway. However the RTT movements appear to not quite align as 0z82 ends in P2 and the tour is in P1. All be sorted on the day.

    In which case the forum search facility isn't showing it up. The only two hits I got were for previous years. Have just searched this section of the forum and can't find another thread for it so would welcome pointing in the right direction.
