Is 70000 staying on for further running in, or returning to Crewe with 46100?

Also running the following weekend - Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October.

I believe the move below is for Brit to go back home to Crewe.

Was reported on the exchange siding with 70000 leading on Wednesday night, but never left on Thursday.
;
Presumably Fitness To Run exam was done before that - any idea why it didn't go?

I wasn't around to see it, but 5Z91 was showing in the exchange siding all day. Rumour was a paperwork problem.

nice video of it this morning on its way to Crewe, towing the coach and the 47.
it's https://www.facebook.com/harry.bradley.777/videos/1695426140587060/, though I'm not sure if you will be able to see this.

There is also a short YouTube video taken at Old Hill, including some wheelslip.

Isn't that one of Sharpo's regular spots?

Certainly is. A friend of mine filmed that, I've just had a week down in Cornwall so couldn't get to see it, unfortunately.
