Is anyone aware of when the intended 4tc unit will be taken to East Grinstead as part of there Diesel gala event? Hoping to see it pass as it makes its way there

My guess would be that as GBRf are exhibiting examples of their operational fleet there, they would be used to haul the 4TC there. This will probably be very close to the start of the weekend, so the locos are unavailable for their normal duties for the shortest time possible.

The 4TC ran with three 73s, all under power as far as I could tell - giving 4,800hp for four coaches! Photo attached, from East Croydon.

It certainly was an enjoyable afternoon at the Bluebell.

I managed to catch a video of the unit arriving at Sheffield Park behind 73964: https://youtu.be/unxznUmBZnc

There are a few other clips from yesterday on my channel as well if anyone is interested, plus I have a few more to upload.

I have various photos and video clips to upload too, and I concur it was a top day on the Bluebell today. Apart from the token getting stuck in the box at Kingscote around 1600! :lol:

The 4TC is down to be taken to the SVR tomorrow apparently.
