Hi All. Looks like the Steam ban on the ECML is set to continue over the winter period. I am booked for a trip on the York Yuletide Express charter on 15/12/11 behind Bittern from Norwich to York and it is now showing as being booked via one hell of a diversion! It was going Norwich - Ely - Peterborough - York but now is showing as travelling via Norwich - Ely - Peterborough - Lincoln - Gainsborough - Doncaster - Church Fenton - York. Must admit I'm pretty disappointed was looking forward for some serious steam action up the ECML! Wonder how much longer this diversion will take.
