Not being savvy to finding out the timings of this train over the  S&C, can anyone help me with the approx times the train might pass Ribblehead in each direction?

 

Thanks

Best bet to look at realtimetrains for Blea Moor, with operator LS for the day you’re interested in. 
Here’s the 21st of July:

 https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/detailed/gb-nr:BLEMOR/2021-07-21/0000-2359?stp=WVS&show=all&order=wtt&toc=LS

1018 & 1627 southbound and 1157 & 1757 northbound

 

In fact putting in Ribblehead station works just as well, about 3 mins difference

Looks pretty smart to me, if not a memorable classic.

Ditto. Can't stand bright, vivid liveries - I find them garish and tacky and out of place everywhere except places I find ugly and tacky.

 

But then again liveries only come in two categories - marmite or (almost) universally loathed. You'll never find one with universal appeal.

Cant wait to see the livery on your HST that you've saved from the scrap line

I thought the only one saved from the scrapline is the IC125 groups set, and a few odd power cars.

 

I was hoping this one would be in reverse blue/grey as a 1970’s Pullman, but theres still chance yet.

 

The rest are “service” stock run to make money for their operators, NR excepted…so not saved from scrap.. yet... even the LNER Blue Grey Set hasnt been scrapped..yet.

 

It will look nice on the S&C, I was hoping for a more regular LSL heritage loco hauled set myself, last year was pretty good.

In view of the scientific advice about COVID transmissability and it being better to be outside in the fresh air, surely the Staycation Express, both this year or last, should have been formed of pressure ventilated stock (Mk1s and/or Mk2a-c) with windows blocked open rather than Mk3 air-conditioned coaches. Would guarantee loco haulage too.....

 

Of course I'm biased.
