Just looked on diagrams and Tornado is at Kidderminster NR station.

Edit, it's facing south for gala today.

After it's had its bogie looked at; it's coming out on the wheel-drop at Bridgnorth, which is the reason it came in the first place.

I've seen nothing yet on RTT. The next railtour it is working is December 1st from Victoria so perhaps it will leave on November 30th ready for the following day???

There's nothing down for this weekend relevant to 60163, and the line is handed over to the PW during the week, so I would imagine next weekend.

Possibly Sunday morning. Just thinking out loud it will need to be turned and run round its support coach. Just guessing based on what I would do. BH to KD Main LE+POB. Leaves POB on main to 1EL & takes water. 1EL to yard and turns' . Yard to either EL then EL to loop to run round POB. couples to POB and propels to exchange line ready for main line departure

Of course I may be completely wrong

It won't need to turn -- it will be tender-first to Kidder, which is the right way round for its departure towards Worcester.
