    According to the Northampton Herald it is on from London and the article includes timing.

    Looks like those timings could be the approximate ones from the RTC website.

    I see whoever wrote the article hasn't researched it properly, FS is only doing the journey one way but the article says it will steam back across the viaduct while pulled by a diesel locomotive.

    The timings on the Northampton Herald site are the same as the outline times on the RTC website, so aren't confirmed yet.

    For those who are thinking of coming to this part of the world to see FS on Harringworth viaduct, the village has arranged a car park off the Seaton Road adjacent to the viaduct. The viaduct is undergoing some maintenance work at the moment. I don't know how this might affect the view.

    This looks like the ECS movement for Saturday: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U50555/2016/06/04/advanced

    Tour Operator shows this a going via Acton Wells, Dudding hill to Cricklewood etc... So I take it 60103 must now fit through Clapham Junction, Putney, Barnes etc... at least as far as New Kew Junction.

    Going to be some rapid re-planning in the morning I suspect if/when the times are loaded!

    Does anyone know if this tour is going via Doncaster and the ECML or via Moorthorpe, Pontefract and Ferrybridge ?

    It 's by no means the first time that a train has been originally advertised as going via Doncaster and then switched at a late stage to Moorthorpe.

    Going good through Pavenham north of Bedford, John Daniel on the regulator. Hope he gets a good rub to make up for his last drive when terminated at Stevenage!

    I do fear for this train once it gets off the MML. A bit more rural, less fences etc etc. All bets may be off on it getting to York on time.

    This is getting a little ridiculous. I wasn't hugely surprised at the trespass levels on the initial tour but why are people getting so excited on so many occasions?
