    All trains show on the tt as class 1 or class 2, so would suggest not.

    Personally I'm glad it's out, not really a good choice on this weekend for me, better on the small engine weekend. Timetable still not amended.

    Hopefully TT will be updated tomorrow. Was only distributed to Heads of Department this evening.
    Hope to see you there

    Well, when 45212 got to Castleton today the WCRC driver bailed out at East Junction and told us she wasn't going round the triangle. If she was he would have had to take it round...yes? So the last I saw, it was propelling the POB towards Hopwood GF. So I assume it ran round at Heywood and continued TF to Bury. So it should be facing south. 76084 is facing south, or was last week.

    76084 faces south, all others face north including 45212 if a photo taken at Green lane this afternoon is correct.

    Spring Branch is quite correct. The only one TBA is 42765 when it arrives. Although I'd put my money on a north facing crab...

    So, 45212 DID turn at Castleton then? I knew I should have hung about!

    Definitely out for this tomorrow, though the weather is not looking super-inviting!

    Looking at the T/T I assume there is an ECS movement Sat + Sun to get the loco and stock to Rawtenstall for the 09.30 departure, guess about 08.30/08.45 off Bury?

    Thanks ! I didn't realise until today that 76084 spent two short periods as a Lancaster Green Ayre loco (24J) in the 1950's! That makes her all the more special for me :)
