    With two Deltics (9019 & 55 019) due at the Bluebell to haul trains on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week I was wondering if anyone new the timings and routing for their journey from (and back to) Barrow Hill?

    The move south is tomorrow - see http://thedps.co.uk/

    After the event, both locos are heading for the Severn Valley rather than back to Barrow Hill.

    Thanks for that Black Watch.

    Is Alycidon hauling RHF? and does the movement involve any other loco's?

    I popped over to Sheffield Park this morning - it was great to see some diesels on the Bluebell Railway!

    I snapped a couple of pictures on my phone of the 'star guests'.

    I passed these twice today on two different journeys aboard my train (now work that one out...). Rather unexpected as I hadn't read up on it beforehand - but a pleasant surprise!
