Saturday 8th June 2024 saw the ‘Blyth & Tyne or Beamish’ charter out from Finsbury Park to Bedlington Sidings, led by UK Railtours. In this scenario, you form the first leg of this tour as far as Peterborough. Your traction consists of two immaculate double-headed Class 43 power cars (43468 and 43480), courtesy of Rail Adventure – hauling a rack of Mk2 carriages. You operate under headcode 1-Zulu-43 for today’s journey.


You will make immediate stops at Potters Bar (07.12) and Stevenage (07.34) before arriving at Peterborough (c. 08.20) where your colleague will be there to take over for the remainder of the journey towards North East England. Our guests are in for an exciting day out today – with the option of either alighting at Durham to see the Beamish Open Air Museum, or continuing beyond Newcastle for a mini tour of the freight-only Blyth and Tyne lines! Be sure to provide them with a pleasant journey this morning!
