(2) From the letter sent to tour passengers by Steam Dreams: 'It is with great regret that I am writing to inform you that we have decided to cancel our evening tour on 22nd December due to the Met Office weather forecast for the end of next week.... With the cold weather forecast we are concerned that even a slight delay would have a negative impact on the evening tour (particularly as the evening is likely to be colder). We are, of course, mindful of people getting home safely when making our decision to cancel'.
