Are they likely to replace 37?

Hard to say really. It's such a big lineup that they may just leave it as it is, it doesn't say that they'll be looking for a substitute so I'd be surprised.

I hope they run the "shunter shuttle At a more sensible time than at previous galas - preferably in late morning or early afternoon. In previous galas they have run them so early that they were inaccessible to anyone travelling longish distances by public transport.

You can live within 100 miles of the gala and miss the early shuttles on some lines! I'll be leaving the house around 0635 for this gala on the Friday and won't get there until around 0950!

0800 arrive 1210 (25 mins of connections included) - 175 miles - so must be quite journey you have that's less than 100 miles and will take 3hr 25?

0635 leave house
0645 bus (I probably could get the 0720 bus but that is tight between bus and train)
0846 from Hereford to Droitwich Spa
1000 from Droitwich Spa to Kidderminster

Arrive at 1010. If I drove, I could go so much more directly and be there within 90 minutes!
