Steam is coming

November is good for steam trains locally with LMS Royal Scot Class 7P 4-6-0 no 46115 Scots Guardsman being transferred from Carnforth to Southall and is due to stop at Rugby Friday 7th November at 15:58 before departing south at 16:51. Plenty of time for photos if the forecasted rain clears off.

The same train is due to take the Robin Hood, London St Pancras-to Lincoln via Corby and Nottingham on Sunday 9th November before returning a different route to London Kings Cross meaning she will be going over the Harringworth viaduct approx. 12:15pm.
She will be returning to Carnforth from Southall on Monday 10th November but no details have been published yet. Meanwhile two separate steam hauled excursions are due in Rugby on Saturday 22nd November but again too early for times to be published so will keep you posted.

Further away and in December on Thursday 11th December another Cathedral Express from Peterborough to Oxford and will pass just a couple of miles from Nene Wash/ March Farmers area. Will be early and due to be a double header with a couple of Class 5s. This one will go down well with a bit of winter birding and a visit to the Chill Out Café.
