Kensington Grain Workings Timetables

Current Timetable (from mid - late 1999)

    Grain arrives at about the same time as previously, but the loco stays dead in the siding until later in the afternoon, when it returns to tottenham.  It used to return at about 6:30, but recently has been leaving before the evening peak, around 2-3:30pm.  This train does not operate on a daily basis, but during peak grain seasons, it does run more frequently.

You can expect to see a T/P class loco, and anything from 2 - 16 grain hoppers (VHGF normally).


Early 1999 Timetable (thanks to Chris Gordon)
No 9594 (arrival of grain) gets to Kensington at 0620am, and pushes back into the sidings, light loco goes at 0630am.

The empties are taken away after
6:00pm.  (about 6:30pm) approx as not known.
