The K1 has arrived at Carlisle. The planned timetable did not quite go to plan on Teesside.

The loco was to turn via Stockton-Eaglescliffe and back to Tees Yard. However, it went to Eaglescliffe first and unfortunatly the points would not operate. Therefore it went to Darlington (no other crossovers before that) before coming back to Stockton and then Tees Yard to pick up the coach. It left 2:22 or 32 mins late but through some trickery in the timetable arrived at Darlington on time. It did not stop at the mail terminal on Tynside and therefore I am sure it did the trip on the one tenderfull.
