The Nene Valley Railway's LNWR weekend has been cancelled as LNWR Coal Tank No.1054 won't be arriving at the NVR in time for the weekend.

Quote from the NVR's website:
Due to issues beyond our control with transporting the Coal Tank to our railway, the loco now won’t arrive in time to make the LNWR weekend as planned, so we have had to postpone the event. The loco will still be coming on hire to the NVR and staying until June, and we will be running the loco as part of the general roster and looking to rearrange a LNWR event as soon as we're able.

BR class 25 No.D7535 will not be available for the Spa Valley's Mixed Traffic gala (25-26 March) as the loco is currently under repair at the South Devon Railway & won't be ready for the planned transport date (Monday 20 March). Should still be coming to Tunbridge Wells later in the year.
