I'm guessing that's what it is.

Then to Swanage, taking something with it??

I think that it's the two class 50s (50026 Indomintable and 50031 Hood) being collected by what I guess to be the two NRM locos, 55002 Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry and D6700, that are going to be at Swanage's Diesel Gala the following weekend.

We'll soon find out. I hadn't spotted Friday's move when I made the post and just guessed it was the arrival of a Deltic.

50026 and 50031 already at Eastleigh, looking at the timings it is booked to call at Barrow Hill and the GCR(North) at East Leake, i'd say its stabling for the night because the driver is out of hours.

So it is 55019!

Presumably the times were put in the system after that was posted on the DPS site

A footnote to this is a member of the public tweeted the SVR to know if we had the times...which prompted me to look at the DPS website... then back to Sharpo's original post and the Realtimes link.

We got there in the end!

Which explains the blue deltic and green 37 that I saw trundle past my window in York this morning...

Yet another student paying more attention to goings-on outside the classroom than within it? Smile
