    It is just one of 1000s of paths that are in the system and save planners having to sort out the schedules every time, they are activated as and when required.

    ...is the right answer! ;)

    Most, if not all RHTT paths remain 'in the system' year round
    for exactly the reasons you describe.

    Unfortunately NR also get lazy with these paths and whilst they see little (if any use) outside RHTT season NR won't give them up for other operators.

    Not true, if a STP path running outside RHTT season can make use of it then it will. There is no way they will be given up for a LTP path though, RHTT get crap paths as it is so removing any chance of them running just won't happen.

    and the route want them left in the "system" just in case.

    There have been some ad hoc usages of out of season RHTT runs to meet certain challenging weather related issues

    STP = Short Term Path?
    LTP = Long Term Path?

    I thought

    STP = Short Term Plan
    LTP = Long Term Plan.

    Trainfan is correct. We need some sort of acronym glossary sticky somewhere.
