    The paths posted above have changed to show the train now goes via Dorridge both ways. Britannia confirmed as the steam by Saphos.

    Is Britannia working the whole journey or just on and off at Crewe?

    When I saw there was a diesel on the back I wondered if they were going to turn the whole train, I guess it must have run round the stock once 70000 had left Stratford to turn.
