Ri­ley Rail­touRs looks to Run moRe tRains

Steam Railway (UK) - - DOWNMAIN -

Bri­tain’s new­est pro­moter is look­ing to run more tours in 2019, af­ter a Set­tle-Carlisle and Shap de­but with dou­ble-headed ‘Black Fives’ on Novem­ber 10 (see pic­ture, page 110). Still to come from Ian Ri­ley Rail­tours in 2018 is a sim­i­lar spin with Fly­ing Scots­man on De­cem­ber 22.

Ian Ri­ley said in Novem­ber that dis­cus­sions were tak­ing place with op­er­a­tor West Coast Rail­ways about the idea of or­gan­is­ing a trip around Easter time, then more in the au­tumn af­ter the close of the ‘Ja­co­bite’ sea­son; the ‘Fives’ in Ri­ley’s care gen­er­ally form the back­bone of mo­tive power for WCR’s Fort William-Mal­laig trains, for which the next sea­son starts on April 19.
