    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    I walked down to the train station but it defeats the object when you pay £17 for a weekly bus ticket.

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    I have complained to First and they said that they are remaining on a Sunday service until further notice. This is madness.

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    This is beyond farcical now. Twice in the past week, I've tried to get the 612 which is an hourly service and twice it's had more than 18 people on and drove past leaving myself and three others at the bus stop. I cant see how this is going to work?

    Easiest/hardest franchises to manage?

    Northern would be a yes. See 150s, 153s, 155s, 156s, 158s, 170s and 195s all used on the vast majority of services.

    Thank you. It was something of a Inquisitive query but that makes sense.

    Does anyone know why this was never positioned in the centre and was slightly to the side?

    When were the Bridlington Excursion platforms last used?

    Fascinating pictures, thank you.

    When were the Bridlington Excursion platforms last used?

    Cheers for the information. I'm guessing the benefits of bi-direction are for the Sheffield and Hull terminators?

    When were the Bridlington Excursion platforms last used?

    Thank you for that information, I only visited Bridlington in the 80s as a child and I couldn’t remember seeing any of the original station. Has the line from Bridlington to Bempton always been single track? I’m guessing the vast majority of services were from the South eg Hull so there...

    When were the Bridlington Excursion platforms last used?

    How many platforms did it originally have and when did they go? Seems strange having platforms 5,6 etc....

    What are the changes to the Whitby line? Have they looked at making the late evening connections at Middlesbrough more favourably?

    Leeds Station Improvement

    Thanks for sharing that. How many platforms will Leeds have when everything is built/remodelled? I count 21 platforms on that plan.

    Leeds Station Improvement

    How long will it be before platform zero is at capacity? Why not just get rid of the car park and put in another two bays?

    TRIVIA: Train length equal to platform number

    Bradford Interchange if it's a 153 instead of a 144 working the Huddersfield. Platform one is that services designated platform which is also the longest at BDI.

    Buses and the coronavirus

    apologies that is correct. I live at the top of Bolton Road by the gym and leisure centre and both 640/641 stop there so hence the 15 minute Sunday service comment.

    Unexpected trains as substitute traction.

    The 144 that did the York to Blackpool last year.

    Buses and the coronavirus

    Check the colour routes like the 640/641, 645 etc... Going to 20 minutes from Monday. The loadings are still justifiable if these services during the morning and day/early evening. After 7:00pm they’ve been dead.
