Due to Engineering work in the Eccles area, the ELR Flying Scotsman Charter Train on Saturday 15th September “might” now have to be re-routed.
If the Charter does get re-routed, there is the possibility that it would go via Stockport to Altrincham, Knutsford and Chester in both directions.
If that was to be the case, there would be NO requirement for 40145 to be involved on the Saturday.
This info is just intended to make you aware of the situation so you chaps don’t yet make firm plans to travel to Crewe on the Saturday if the 40 was not going to be involved.
We will keep you informed of the situation.
