Steam Dreams
The Cathedrals Express

Train cancelled due to due to the unavailability of the booked steam locomotive. The letter to booked passengers said: "Our booked engine is no longer available as it requires remedial work to its boiler, which unfortunately means that it will be unable to be used on the main line for several months. We have spoken with all of our suppliers to try and source a replacement locomotive but have been unable to do so. This is because there are a number of other trips operating on that day and also two other engines are under repair thus leaving the available fleet greatly reduced".
