Thinking of heading over tomorrow as I've got no plans,not been for years. Will there be much running with it being bank holiday? I'm driving as Ive left it too late to get a cheap ticket. Which station is good,I used to like Preston but thinking Crewe might be busier.

Any 92s booked to run? Never seen one believe it or not

I'm not sure in terms of freight, but Crewe will be busy with passenger trains around about 12pm, the works scheduled for tomorrow in the crewe area are due to finish around 11am.

Thanks John and sonic. Used to love sonic as a kid! Good times.

If anyone can help with the freight by mid morning tomorrow that'd be great. 90% sure ill go, or if not might just stay local instead.

Not great mark! Hit loads of traffic, so after I'd finished in Liverpool I didn't have long so called at Warrington bank quay... saw 390045 and a freightliner 66 absolutely flying through with loaded coal, quite a spectacle for a shed! Left a nice oily smell too. Didn't hang around as i had my 1yr old with me,and it was pouring down. need to plan a proper trip on my own, maybe at the weekend.

On another note,do you know of any regular 60 hauled trains in the Yorkshire area? Used to see the old tilcon quarry train from my science block at school, remember them well but not many about these days.
