Steam trains through Sheffield 2019/2020

Recommended Posts

Thanks for that and thanks for the info re 23 September. I won't miss it this time! How do you access these specials from Realtime Trains,  I only know how to access stations?  I find UKsteam.info doesn't show everything these days, especially loco and empty trains.

 

Cheers,

When you open the RTT page it will offer a choice of "Advanced ".

You can access stations and other points on route.

If you type in Dore you would not see the train (you would if you use Dore West Jn  -spelling is critical)

On the safe side use Grindleford.

Now you will see trains in that hour. Change the "what time?" field and you get all the trains that day.

This is too many so you can reduce the number using the "calling at" fields.

If you are looking for at steam trains use the "green"" buttons just before the blue "submit" button.

WTT are all the planned freight and passenger trains planned.(Q) means they do not always run

VAR are variation of the planned timetable

CAN shows cancelled trains only.

STP are the special trains, one offs and include the diesel and steam specials. If this is left "green" and the others "grey" the huge list becomes tiny.

If you click on the "blue" ID code, it will show the whole route and times.

 

The information for this site comes from different sources and is not always 100% accurate and trains can disappear, appear and accelerate

Use it for Delay Repay evidence

Lastly STP trains can go hours earlier or hours later or be cancelled at any time. Diesels can often replace for whole or part of the journey.

Chesterfield has more steam than Sheffield and not all steam trains are advertised .

 

UKsteam.info does not appear to be updating

And thanks to everybody out there who has contributed. The day started with an unknown steam locomotive wizzing past and because of it our friends out there have opened up lots of new railway opportunities!

Thanks to Annie B. and others I can give the times for a second outing of 5699 Galetea as it returns to Carnforth from Burton on Monday 23 September.  It is important to also check Realtimes on Monday morning, The marker stations I will use are Dronfield and Grindleford. 

https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/advanced/DRO?stp=WVS&show=all&order=wtt         

This is the link for Dronfield (DRO?), to check other stations simply change the name in the location box and click 'submit'.

Sorry about the spacing!

 

Cheers, Wazzie
