regarding :

6233 Duchess of Sutherland following failure in Norwich. The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust has released an update on the repair work taking place to her and she is currently stabled in Norwich following failure last Friday.  The support crew, with the Right Inside Valve and Bush, were brought home to Butterley on Saturday for repair.

At the time of writing, a new tail rod bush is nearly finished being machined.

Once this is finished, the staff will travel back to Norwich to reassemble the locomotive.

They will then dispose of the locomotive and prepare the locomotive for a Light Engine movement from Norwich to Southall so the locomotive can travel to Bristol on Saturday in preparation to work the last Royal Duchy of the season on sunday 15th.

all the latest .....


The Cumbrian Coast Express
Saturday 28th September


We have a high-speed journey down the West Coast Main Line to Carlisle, hauled by a blue Class 86 electric locomotive. We then enjoy a steam tour from Carlisle back to Carnforth via the Cumbria Coast hauled by Jubilee class locomotive No. 45690 Leander. We return from Carnforth to London behind our blue electric locomotive.

 

We leave London Euston at around 07:10 with electric traction, and speed north along the West Coast Main Line (WCML). We stop to pick up passengers at Milton Keynes (where passengers from Watford Junction join by service train), Rugby (where passengers from Northampton join by service train), Nuneaton and Crewe. We continue north along the WCML to Preston, our final stop to pick up passengers.

We pass through Lancaster and along the edge of Morecambe Bay before we arrive at Carnforth. Leaving Carnforth, we pass the Brief Encounter café and commence the climb up to Grayrigg. We then travel through the beautiful Lune Gorge to Tebay, before the ascent to Shap. After crossing the Cumbrian Fells we descend to Penrith, and then head for Carlisle. There will be time available in Carlisle to explore this ancient city with its cathedral and castle, plus an assortment of shops and cafes.

We leave Carlisle steam hauled and our return steam hauled journey to Carnforth takes the scenic coastal route around the Cumbrian Coast. After Maryport, we run along the shoreline through to the industrialised district of Workington, once a centre for the production of iron and steel. There are spectacular cliff edge views as we journey southwards from Workington through to Whitehaven, with the Isle of Man visible on a clear day across the Irish Sea. We run very close to the shoreline for several miles prior to St Bees, famous for its priory and school. We pass Sellafield, where the British Nuclear Fuels works dominates the landscape. At Ravenglass, we meet up with the miniature Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway which is normally steam operated.

At Millom, we head inland and follow the sweeping estuary through Foxfield and Kirkby in Furness. We will pass through the ship-building town of Barrow in Furness and onwards past the 14th century Dalton Castle to Dalton in Furness. After Ulverston, we cross Leven Viaduct and curve along the edge of the bay through to Grange-over-Sands. There are more views across Morecambe Bay as we cross the lengthy Kent Viaduct at Arnside and approach Carnforth. Here, we shall say farewell to our gallant steam locomotive and our blue Class 86 electric locomotive will take over for a fast run to London Euston.
