    In the meantime, The White Rose railtour confirmed (it’s a busy schedule currently proposed for Tornado in 2019), I said it before and I’ll say it again, proposed times for this tour, Kings X to Potters Bar in 15 mins, Kings X to Peterborough in 75 mins - (timings virtually identical to last years Ebor Flyer) so are the timings achievable not running at the higher maximum?

    With the right path yes easily. Needs fast line all the way. Similar to Waterloo to Salisbury which I once did in 76/02 for the 83.7 miles, max just over 80. 35014 ex works on 11.

    Not quite the same though is it. In that 0814 slot I'd say 35 mins to Welwyn, overtaken by 0830 and 0833 ex KX then 50 mins Welwyn to Peterboro start to stop.

    I'd suggest A1 Steam get confirmation from NR that the route onto Harrogate is fit for 'steamy trains both ways' RE the bridge at the southern end of The Stray. If you ask now, you might just get a reply before the tour runs.
