    RTT shows 5M51 (Carnforth - Hellifield - Carnforth) running 18/05, rather than the usual "runs as required". . . .???

    Looking at RTT doesn't appear to be any of the paths activated today and no POB so assume she is going no further for now?

    Has Clan line run any of its light engine tests yet? its almost as if Carnforth were waiting for 28 to be done, before allowing 18 to stretch its legs, hopefully tomorrow will be BIL's light engine test

    As Scots Guardsman is withdrawn then Merchant 18 needs to be commissioned. Timing seems obvious.

    Some years ago Mrs S was convinced that we were quite lost in the middle of France. She realised that we were not lost when I pulled up outside Tournon Station. (When Tournon-Lamastre worked through the SNCF tunnel).
