The Festive Cheshire
From Pathfinder Railtours: "Train is cancelled due to an ongoing dispute between the company operating this excursion for us - E.W.S. - and members of the R.M.T. union, leading to the latter not working any overtime and thus resulting in a shortfall in staffing cover required to operate this train."
Planned route & locos:
|EWS class 37's||Slough - Maidenhead - Reading - Didcot Parkway - Swindon - Bristol Parkway - Cwmbran - Chester|
|EWS class 37's||Chester - (reverse of outward route) - Slough|
(1) Options included: (a) Chester, (b) Llangollen Railway & (c) Boat Museum, Ellesmere Port.
