Good news, Clan Line will once again be out on the mainline tomorrow 7th May, this is first trip since 'The Chiltern Hills' on 15th February last year. This will be a loaded test run hauling the Pullmans for the benefit of DBS train crews, Belmond and our own engineers as this is the first run apart from a test in early March last year after the bearings on the middle engine were re-white metalled.
The run will be on a revised 'Surrey Hills' circuit running as ECS, running via West London Line, Willesden SW Sidings, Kew East Jn, Virginia Water, Chertsey where the water stop will take place instead of Shalford due to pathing constraints, returning via Woking, Guilford, Redhill, East Croydon, Selhurst, Clapham Jn & Victoria. Outline timings as follows:
5Y28 Victoria P2depart 11 45
Kensington O 12/11
South Acton 12/44
Brentford 13/05
Feltham 13/11
Virginia Water 13/28

Clan Line has successfully passed her FTR and will be departing Victoria today at 1145 on the new Surrey Hills path, the water stop is now Chertsey not Shalford due to timetable alterations from 1333 to 1349, the arrival at Victoria is 1609.
