Only two different timetables.

Good, having lots of different timetables is confusing for passengers and sometimes staff! The new A is a 3 set service which is plenty for most days.

But there are several different versions for staff and A & C were basically the same with the diner added.

I also note that there doesn't seem to be the diner on any B timetable despite it running on Sundays.

Public or staff versions? As it's back to diners only, it won't appear in the normal public timetable.

Sunday is A, not B. And yes, the diner is a separate train not shown in the public timetable. Runs on tables A4 and A5 in the Working Timetables.

Kieren I meant staff working timetables, the B timetable is used on a few Sundays in the preview timetable, 02/04/18, 06/05/18 and 26/08/18.

Yep, saw what you meant just after posting: Easter and the May and August bank holidays

The published working timetable leaflet on SVR Office 365 site doesn't have a B4 timetable with a path for the Sunday Diner. At first I thought it would go in the FE path but as that departs Kidderminster at 12:08 I realised that can't be correct so I email Bill and Martin.

FWIW Bill's email footer reads "from 09/11/17 my focus is on I.T. and documentation only. Any Operations issues should be addressed directly to a member of the Ops Team."

Yes I realised that I did copy in Martin, they are using 12:08 FE slot for the Sunday Diner on those dates.

Looking at table A as now circulated with the SVR News - the footnote gives dates when the 11.35 ex KDR will be steam hauled including dates in April, May, June, the whole of August, and 3 in September. There is no mention of July which seems strange when this is at least in part school holiday period and peak season. Is this an accidental omission?

Looking at the preview timetable, there doesn't appear to be any mention of the small engine gala at the end of September, but the event still appears on the website under special events 2018. Is this event still planned to go ahead, and if so, will it be a special timetable?

I also notice on the working timetable that they are planning on running Santa Sleigh special that finishes at 6:50 pm.
