    Default steam train due at Lime St station - Sat 19th July

    the former LNER A4 Pacific 60009 Union of South Africa is due to be in Lime St station from lunchtime Saturday to celebrate the Tall Ships event.

    let's hope there will be an opportunity to go in and see it as it's only there for a few hours.

    Arrives about 12, leaves about 5 - it won't be kept in the station between those times though.

    Arrives 11.41, leaves 17.31, but like I said, it won't be in the station all day, probably just for 20 minutes after arrival and 20 before departure.

    Incidentally, it is a charter train from Scarborough.

    Where are they going to be turning it? If it's coming in to Liverpool cab front then it's not going to be going out cab front when it departs?

    Probably Crewe, which will also be looking after another steam engine that day for a charter from Chester.

    Liverpool:

    Chester:

    Lime Street will be very busy tomorrow between half 11 and 12 as there are three charter trains due to arrive at 11.30, 11.41 and 11.59, one steam hauled and one Orient Express coaches.
