The original plan was altered and information was received instructing everyone to meet at Kinchley lane at 07;15hrs for a safety brief before walking down to our first location Rabbit bridge where the 8f was waiting for us. It was hoped that the weather would be kind and we would arrive to glorious morning sunshine but unfortunately it wasn't to be. The plan after that was to go back to our cars and drive to Swithland where the Standard 5 would join the charter and passing movements would begin. The rest of the day would be spent with both loco's at various locations along the line.
