Was waiting patiently for The Yorkshireman to pass Langley Mill earlier, should have been Oliver Cromwell and 2x West Coast 47s, with Oliver Cromwell being left at Railfest at York with the 47s returning later.

But it passed some 35 minutes late minus Oliver Cromwell, top and tailed by the 47s, any idea what's happened to Oliver Cromwell?

Made up some time on the original with no need to water as it was at Leagrave at 10-00 over an hour and a half late and Oakham an hour late at 11:20

We bugged out after we got to the bank at Eggleton south of Oakham to be told by someone there packing up it had failed at 8:15 which puts the fail in North London or Herts somewhere and was now on two 47s an hour behind
Not looking good for steam tours at the moment with the blow back incident as well last weekend

it was a late running t3 possesion somewhere down south, meaning the loco was trapped in the depot/yard. hence it also departing about 80 late.
