    Famous people on trains

    Dermot O'Leary a few years back. First class late evening Euston to Liverpool train. Don't think my daughters have yet forgiven me for not getting selfie with him lol. I was a fellow passenger.

    They might ask if you walked out with all the passengers from the Avanti.

    GM Wayfarer - Wigan to Warrington

    I think the bigger risk would be RPIs at either Bank Quay or North Western than getting gripped on the train.

    GM Wayfarer - Wigan to Warrington

    Thanks, you confirmed what I suspected. I thought I'd seen it written somewhere that it was explicitly excluded, but couldn't find it. I could see on the map it didn't appear to be allowed.

    Why are so many trains in a mostly white livery these days?

    I'd agree with TPE being the best of those I know well. It looks good on the 185s and on the Nova fleets. I think the Pendelinos look really good now - sleek which is good for the type of train they are. Better than they did with Virgin (and I quite liked that too).

    First memories of a London terminus?

    I can't remember my first one, but late 70s I always loved Liverpool Street. It was pretty much a dump, but for spotting for someone from the North West, it was a real treasure trove. Everything would be a cop.
