    Trivia - Contrasting Stations Served by the Same Train

    Taking the Settle to Carlisle line from either Leeds or Carlisle and alighting at Dent is certainly a contrast in surroundings!

    Any particular reason why 26/9 isn’t showing? Planned or systems just not updated yet?

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    Yes, surely it’s time to have the stoppers actually stopping at all shacks? Surely that’s the whole point of a stopping service!

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    The local newspaper has a piece about Gilsland station and it’s possible reopening gaining some ground. https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/news/18516468.plans-village-station-one-step-closer-reality/ It plays up on the fact it would be the only station directly adjacent to Hadrians Wall, on this...

    Northern Consultation Dec 2020

    Interesting stuff for those of us who use the TVL regularly. As has been mentioned in the post about the line, whilst the doubling of service west of Hexham was both needed and welcomed, the service east of Hexham and in the Newcastle area needs sorted - it’s currently a mish mash with 3 per...

    Ah, that would make sense. Wonder what flow it will be? (I don’t do Facebook but thanks!)

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    Recently noticed some DC Rail Freight engines going up and down the TVL, looked like they were doing route learning or similar. Anyone any idea if this for a new freight path or such?

    Preston Station Roof (Mon 13th Jan)

    Doesn’t sound good! https://twitter.com/nationalrailenq/status/1216629333235765248?s=21 https://t.co/ZLu4iD2yNw?amp=1 A drive down the M6 for me this morning by the looks instead of sampling Avanti for the first time!

    LNER Diversions Tyne Valley Line (2019)

    Just booked a trip for Saturday to Newcastle and it appears the east coast diversions are on, any idea how many weeks? Far more comfortable than playing 142 roulette!

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    I was speaking to a guard on a service this week, he seemed to think Connect was highly unlikely come December, certainly via the ECML.

    Carlisle Station - Viaduct Ramp - Open for Pedestrians?

    Little heads up for those who do use the Viaduct car park when heading to Carlisle station, it’s now free parking after 3pm under a new trail introduced by the local council. Every little helps! https://www.carlisle.gov.uk/news-and-events/park-for-free-after-3pm

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    I note in the Northern Dec 19 Thread that it appears the Stillington application was knocked back, any ideas what the effect will be for the proposed Connect services? Coast line instead?

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    Be interesting to see how it all works if Connect begins in December, as aren’t the Middlesbrough to Carlisle via Newcastle pencilled in to run via the ECML?

    A step closer? https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/news/17741647.milestone-as-3945m-borderlands-inclusive-growth-deal-is-signed-off/ Would’ve been handy the other week as a diversion when both the West and East Coast had severe delays and blockages!

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    Didn’t the Middlesbrough/Nunthorpe run to Hexham anyways, and it was the Morpeth to MetroCentre that got extended to Hexham?

    Tyne Valley Line timetable updates

    Yes, not many Stations can complain at the new service levels! Had a good look at the full timetable last night, noticed there’s 29 services to Newcastle but only 27 to Carlisle along the full length of the line, sure there’s a reason for it, and it will likely get balanced out come the...
