:) Don't forget folks, a first for The East Lancashire Railway, a charter train "The High Speed Train" (HST) visits The East Lancashire Railway on Saturday 12-10-2013, the HST arrives at Bury Bolton Street Station at 13:20 hours, departs for Rawtenstall Station at 13:40, arrives Rawtenstall at 13:58.
The train leaves Rawtenstall at 14:25 arriving at BBS at 14:53 and departing BBS at 17:30 hours, plenty of time for the passengers to have a few swift pints and something to eat in The Trackside.
The train originates from London (St. Pancras) Station at 08:03 arriving back in London at 22:08.
Deep in the heart of Swinetown.

Not quite the correct timings.

Arrival at Bury is 13:13 and arrival at Rawtenstall is 14:08. All other times are as quoted above.

Could of course charge them a fiver a pint to make them feel at home! :wink:
