The SVR website shows the loco running the BN1 turn on March 25th subject to repair work being completed.

It's been raised on the unofficial Facebook page in the meantime. This hasn't been 'announced' on official social media, pending confirmation. Hopefully there will be an official public announcement on 23rd (Wednesday).

Patrick

Thanks, noticed you've updated that page since I looked at it earlier.

Filmed it today on "Safari Park Curve", then again at Arley (and a train ride to Highley) and finally the departing shot from Highley. Playlist lasts about 9 minutes:-

No. I understand this loco is now due to stay for a little longer - 8 steaming's in total (including this weekend which was 4). I'm sure an announcement will be made with dates but I don't think its due to be running next weekend though, but I could be wrong. Will have to wait and see!

I was at Kidderminster today to see it arrive and depart, videos uploaded and playlist created showing the loco in action over the weekends that it ran. Running time about 25 minutes.
