I quote from FB and so it is unconfirmed, but I've no reason to doubt it:

"The 57's are taking the Belle stock down to Eastleigh for summer maintenance."

Does the Northern Belle train ever take time out and have a sort of 'close season', like fishing and football, or is it an all year round operation? I am guessing both the train itself and the staff need time to recuperate?
Dear All, could the "summer maintenance" mentioned by Patrick be a type of close season I was enquiring about?

Looking at dates it is out on 16th July then not again until 4th August, so this is just a short break for it. Unless of course there are trips other than those listed on their site.

It seems the locos (and stock?) went to Northam carriage servicing depot today. A search indicates there is a wheel lathe there, so possibly the reason for the visit?

No sign of any move or schedule for tomorrow's train. However there is a schedule this Thursday from Kidderminster for a Victoria-Ormskirk, not in the STN on svrlive.

68025/28 through Old Hill 21.24 to Kidder.

It didn't show on RTT but ecs from Eastleigh did run, arriving about 19.42 - probably with 57301 and 57303. So looks like a change of locos.

Away from SVR at 23.40 and up the Dark Side to Victoria. I made do with seeing the 68s earlier in the evening, bit too late to go and see the ecs move.

68003 replaced 68002 a couple of days ago, so 03 and 27 return this evening from Kings X.

Empty stock out in the early hours last Saturday with 57301 and 57303, returning early hours of Tuesday morning behind 68016 and 68030 at the moment.

Looks as if Saturday was Manchester to Edinburgh and back to Crewe. Sunday was Chester, Liverpool, Manchester, Shrewsbury, Chester, Liverpool, Manchester and back to Crewe. Not sure about Monday but looked like ecs from Crewe to Kings Cross, then to York, and later to Edinburgh, then ecs back via Crewe to Kidder.

57301, 57303 and 37602 ran from Crewe to Kidder yesterday, the 37 returned later in the day. The 57s worked the Belle ecs to Liverpool early this morning and are now heading to Bristol via Crewe and Banbury.
