Hello all,

Can anybody shed any light on the movement of 70000 Britannia from Bury to Sheffield on Friday as see here on UK Steam?

Seems an odd place to be going given there are no mainline tours around the sheffield area this weekend and the nearest preserved line / centre is barrow hill.

Also would seem a strange place to take it for a test run

I wonder if there is a subsequent movement missing here ?

Reports elsewhere suggest it's doing some freight work at a steel works in Sheffield.
