    A 37 should be as quick to prep and start as a 20. Might take marginally longer to inspect, but only a few minutes.

    When is the 40 arriving and is there any chance it might be operating over the half term holidays

    I would have said the 37 is if anything easier, because everything is accessible on walking through. However, there is little in it in reality. Most diesel electrics can be in service (if not winterised) in the time it takes to get the air pressure up and test the brakes.

    6023 now appears on the SVR website roster page and will hopefully be operating test trains from 27th February to 1st March between Bridgnorth and Highley. The King will be top n tailing with a Class 50.

    "After the latest (18 02) Windows 10 update this week, SVRLive doesn’t work on W10 desktops, laptops, and tablets – just displays a blank page. I’ve reported this to Wix.

    All other browsers and types of device work. The site management / editing also work on Edge/IE.

    There’s only 2 ways to fix this at the moment – uninstall the update (which we don’t recommend), or use a different browser.

    We currently get around 25% of users on Edge/IE."


    Thanks

    Thanks, feedback is it seems to display a blank page when using IE/Edge with W8 or W10 but other browsers (Chrome, Firefox) are unaffected.

    No sweat with Linux Mint either..... (My PC is a Microsoft Free Zone - Windows 10 was the last straw!). :)
