    Can someone tell me what working I saw today?

    I was at Ulleskelf this morning when an EMT HST (with passengers) passed north on the Down Normanton at 10.48.

    Or was the STP-YRK delayed, diverted and de-Meridianed?

    It's actually on a Railtour for Spitfire Railtours from London St Pancras to York & Scarborough! As to who wants to go to Scarborough at this time of year though is another question entirely!

    This was Spitfire Railtours' St Pancras-York-Scarborough charter.

    Thanks for that folks. Killing 35 minutes at Ulleskelf, the HST was a welcome surprise.

    York was the main destination, with Scarborough an add-on option. Was a very enjoyable day.

    Fairly busy to York, but not sold out. York-Scarborough bit, in standard A, B & E had afew in. And some joined at York, with a reasonable fare on offer of £10 to Scarborough.

    good to hear. Not bad as it's the first time they've run a tour from these areas so they'll have got some new contacts for their mailing lists.
