Test Train to St Ives
Andrew Triggs & Roger Winnen
Tuesday 15th May Exeter Old Yard Waggonersway to Penzance via St Ives
Wednesday 16th May Penzance to Exeter Old Yard Waggonersway
With another company using heritage traction making a visit here with their timings only activating on RTT an hour before its due to depart (really helpful), there is another website that readers may or may not know about http://www.opentraintimes.com/maps Click on the area you want, in our case Western at the bottom, click on Taunton to Liskeard and you will now have a signal box diagram as an image, scroll left to right for the section you want of this line and in the black boxes a headcode will show the near location of train you wish to follow. You can get the headcode out of Realtimetrains and use it for searching in Opentraintimes! Its another helpful way of tracking movements if you know the headcode which the more interesting stuff you can also take an educated guess at, these differ from the normal passenger codes an example 1C54.

No doubt Roger and Andrew are out early this morning to catch this one - we'll see, or not see. Well done chaps.
