I see the times have appeared for these on Uk Steam now. Looks like a slightly earlier departure from Carlisle compared to the Dalesman runs. There is the Northern strike over the first weekend, and from what I can tell, there will be no service trains over the S&C. http://www.settle-carlisle.co.uk/industrial-action/ It says "Diesel at rear ?" on Uk Steam, so I guess it'll be a case of seeing what happens on the day with that. Fire risk seems a distant memory with the amount of rain there has been the last month, but maybe York has had less than Cumbria?
