    This was originally advertised as Victoria - Margate but has been changed to Waterloo - Deal - K Olympia.

    The outward timings here

    http://www.uksteam.info/tours/t11/t1111a.htm

    show it leaving Waterloo at 1103 and passing Nunhead at 1117. Does that mean it's going to use the old Eurostar flyover to get onto the south london line?

    I should think so. I can't see any other way of getting between the two places in that time.

    For some reason I thought that flyover was out of use/mothballed at the moment.

    It was reported as such on here, but UKRT's Mine of Serpents railtour on Saturday did it both ways with no problems.
