Weymouth is scheduled to receive THREE railtours on Saturday, 8th July...............

Northern Belle (1Z37 08:23 Birmingham International to Weymouth) - arrive 12:41 (depart 18:36);
Dorset Coast Statesman (1Z80 06:09 Norwich to Weymouth) - arrive 13:36 (depart 16:36); and
End of Southern Steam (1Znn 08:43 London Victoria to Weymouth) - arrive 15:24 (depart 17:09)

No timings have been loaded into RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) as of Friday evening for the steam railtour, but the tour is scheduled to go ahead according to the Railway Touring Company website. I believe that the Northern Belle will be returning to Yeovil Pen Mill to stable, but the other two appear to be using Jersey Siding Huh  Is there enough capacity?

Excellent news - saves a personal trip to Yeovil!   Grin    What is the source of this apparent change of itinerary?

All timings now added to RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) - the End of Southern Steam is indeed running to Weymouth and two of the tours are scheduled to be in Jersey sidings at the same time.
