Ian Riley's Black 5 and Standard 4 will be double heading a special over the Settle and Carlise route on Thursday.
The engines will be departing from Bury early Thursday morning and i believe the tour starts from Bedford

The letter I got with my tickets said that it will only be 45407 due to the train being shorter than anticipated. Will be 47826 or 47851 to Hellifield.

So are you saying the ECS or just loco move to Helifield, which should have been the 2 steamers is now 47826 or 47851? Or do you mean 45407 will still be doing the move from Bury?

I've been tipped of about the move 2 weeks ago, saying it's due to pass Blackburn at 09:24. Will the move still run via Blackburn towards Hellifield tomorrow moring? (Thursday)

Well one of the black five steamers + a support coach has gone up Blackburn Daisyfield Junction at around 10:18, heading north late.

It provided a lovely scene with the steam in the winter sky, complimenting the white frosty ground around it though :)
