D9009 ‘ALYCIDON’ completed another successful railtour yesterday. Having departed Carlisle some 56 minutes late owing to delays in getting the loco run round in Carlisle New Yard, the train arrived back at Sheffield just four minutes late, due to an very good run on the ECML which included some 100 mph running due to some excellent pathing by Network Rail control. A big thanks goes to everyone involved, in particular our friends and colleagues at Pathfinder Tours, Riviera Trains and DB Schenker.
