May 2nd Crewe to Kidder, arrival 17.37

http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/R01679/2017/05/02/advanced

Dear Sharpo, A little detective work on the Belle web pages reveals a passenger train picks up on Friday 5th May from Manchester, Leeds & York for a trip to Edinburgh. Then Saturday 6th May picks up from Darlington, Durham and Newcastle then heads to Dundee and Perthshire. I guess the train comes back to Kidderminster the next day?

It's incoming diesels from Barrow Hill and Crewe Heritage centre for the gala, not Northern Belle stuff. Don't know the consist.

There is also a move on Monday for a Deltic and a 31.

I was obviously confused by "Arrival ex NR (TBC), DRS Loco & 3 x NB Coaches" as mentioned in Traffic Notices. Sorry.

I suspect that is the move from Eastliegh where the coaches have been receiving attention.

Lists indicate it was 57303 and 57306 that brought the coaches from Eastleigh yesterday evening. Then continuing up north with 57305, which was already at Kidderminster.

There were four coaches coming up from Eastleigh - 5919, 325, 3267 and 10729, but one stayed with the locos. I've no knowledge of coaches and don't know which ones were dropped off.

The move from Darlington on the 7th seems to have changed. It does not return to Kidderminster as RTT originally indicated, but goes to Crewe instead.

I was interested to see what the times were for the move to Euston for the Class 88 hauled special, wondering what loco would haul the ecs from the SVR - but that won't happen now. Oh well, will have to wait for the gala to see a Class 88.

Just checked what happens when the special returns from Euston, it goes to Crewe first - so no 88 to Kidder with the ecs - even though it is downhill on the way back via Rowley, an 88 should manage that!

Stock now returns on the 10th at 18.00:-

A list of the forthcoming Pullman tours. The tours are advertised on the Pullman web pages.

Sunday 14/5. Derby, Nottingham & Sheffield for a "round trip",
Friday 19/5. Leeds and York via Settle to Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall,
Sunday 21/5. Bristol for a "round trip",
Tuesday 23/5. Manchester, Crewe and Birmingham for London,
Wednesday 24/5. Leeds, York and Doncaster for London.

I would imgaine the train is keeping well away from the busy SVR during the diesel gala?

There is a 02.50 departure on Friday 19th to York, won't be much happening at that time of day, or should I say night.

2 "new" visitors to the Railway amongst the locos from DRS today - 57307, 57306 and 88003. In recent months 57306 has visited several times but I think this is a first for "Lady Penelope" 57307. Of course 88003 is the real "new" loco.
