Ah you caught it then! Timings were supposed to be secret but were leaked I believe. Shame about that horrible palisade fencing though, bloomin' network rail. :(

A couple of years ago there was a lower, wooden fence there. It was much easier to take photos then.

My driver mentioned he'd seen it north of York yesterday, I only did Brum to York so missed it!

On Saturday 14th May, F S is running from York to Edinburgh. I understand it will also be passing through Harringay some time on the evening of Thursday 19th May.
