Slightly tangential, but are lineside photographers somehow provided with an up to date copy of the TN to read before going lineside? The document outlining the procedure for high speed tests (OPG-POL-107) states that the restrictions must be noted in the TN, on SVRLive, and the intranet (does that mean SVR Online?).

However, I can't find any obvious notice on SVRLive, and additional TNs do not appear on that site, and I can't even find the additional TN on SVR Online! It therefore appears that the only notice of the restrictions is Pete's post...

This was a very late TN, and although it should have made it to svrlive, it doesn't seem to have. I've asked for it to be put up there, but can't promise!!

The test runs were with the 73s.
The 97s and 31 went back on Wednesday. The 73s I think are still here.

Yes, got my numbers mixed up well & truly.

Looking at Pete's posting there are more runs next week.

This confirms my earlier mistake and the 97s going back:-




Old Hill, of course!
