Watched that a few days ago, pretty positive and delivered in the usual Geoff and Vicky fashion
Fun and games aboard 1C99 tonight. Train supply gave up not far out of padd and we spent 10 minutes in Slough rebooting it.
The Man In Seat 61 did it back last autumn.
Don’t suppose we will see class 57 on summer Saturday working this year
Apparently so if yiu read back up
Current thinking, no...... . 158 or HSTGTi or "classic" 2+4 all now available.
Does anyone know if any seats are unreservable? I have an online booking for five, and it auto-selected A 27, 37, 38, 41 and 42. Just tried to get GWR to change 27 for a seat closer to the rest of us, and they say they are reserved, but can't say where between, so I wondered if actually, they are non-reservable?
Which sleeper set was at Reading today as I'm looking for 10217 but went past to fast to see any numbers
Twitter GWR help are brilliant, changed my reservation with out hassle
Would have been PZ89 as it’s tonight’s Down Sleeper set.
The last formation sheet I saw for PZ89 (dated the 24/02) had the following vehicles:
17173 12142 10219 10601 10584 10534 10594
For completeness PZ88 (dated 25/02) contained the following vehicles:
17175 12100 10229 10616 10563 10589 10596
I can only presume 10217 is sat spare at Long Rock.
Is there likely going to be any locos travelling to long rock open day by Rail. Thxs
ok thanks Ill have to keep looking then.
10217 wasn't sat spare in Long Rock this morning at 10am, only 12161,10612 and 10590. It could of course have been in the shed.
According to today’s Sleeper Status update, 10217 is at Reading for Tyre Turning so will probably be in the Wheel Lathe Shed.
Also showing as spare at RG is 10612.
That will be one long train by september.
Like a convoy
1A40 was in trouble last night, sparks spotted underneath 57602 when passing Exmouth Junction. Following inspection it was allowed to travel at 40 mph max to Westbury where 57605 attached to it having run down light from Reading. Delayed 155 minutes
Would that have been a dragging brake?
I suspect so. Quite possibly to do with the brake test that would of occurred when loco ran round at Exeter.
Was this spotted by a member of staff in Exmouth Junction Box when the train passed then?
I suppose it possibly wouldn't have happened if the loco hadn't run around at Exeter, but if a member of railway staff hadn't spotted it would it have set off a hot box activation somewhere anyway?
57602 had an electrical issue.
Has the configuration of berths changed recently ? I noticed Coach D now has berths 3 and 4 available, previously berths 1 to 11 in all coaches are set up as solo cabins then 13 to 24 for sharing, hopefully Paul will be along to enlighten us ! Anyone heard a date for extra coach to be added for all nights ?
Configuration changed in D only as 1/2 replaced by easy access toilet and easy access 3/4 cabin. Is mentioned somewhere previously way back - getting a long thread !!
Extra coach should be may timetable change.
White buffet 10229 now stood as spare.
Final coach of refurbishment ( 10225 buffet) should arrive in time for open day.
Ex Swansea shunter 08645 in trainload grey (denamed) arrived last night to supplement our 08410
Open day exhibits are being announced almost daily via the book of face.
Will we be able to go in the Refurbished buffet coach at the Open Day?
Any chance of an update for those not on Faceache?
It is one of my pet hates when such things only appear on said site.
The PUBLICLY CONFIRMED list so far for Apr 13:
W43002, 43185 last event together ?
802 double naming ceremonies
Port of Par Alfred
2251 0-6-0 3205
Something with 08410.....
My suggestion for all 4 of our 57s in one photo for first time ever was "well received " but a 150/158 in chocolate and cream ran out of time - we will see what happens !!!
Lets be friends. In poor lighting earlier 410 and 645 in possibly the first shot together at Long Rock.
What's happening to 08410 may I ask?
Yeah any chance of top n tail shunter moves? If so I may alter my plans
I am unsure what is happening with 410 both for open day and long term. Its certainly operational. I only found out yesterday that there are rumours of it being disposed of elsewhere on internet but been told it's not going anywhere yet. Will have to get confirmation. Hope not.
