(1) From the Rail Blue Charters Website: 'Due to the continued non-availability of our kitchen carriage, we are unable to run the train on August 25th. We tested out this carriage last weekend but unfortunately, the power supply problem reoccurred. Our engineers are working to rectify this problem but we do not feel it fair to operate this train under such circumstances. We apologise for this late decision but our guests best interests are paramount to our business'.
