    The Robin Hood & The Merchant Venturer named train.

    Thanks for your help. I contacted East Midlands via email and received a very pleasant and prompt reply stating that named trains had been removed from their own timetables as it was an emergency timetable and The Robin Hood name would indeed be reinstated once things change. This doesn’t...

    The Robin Hood & The Merchant Venturer named train.

    I hope I am not out of order, but I recently posted a thread entitled Named Trains 2020 https://www.railforums.co.uk/threads/named-trains-2020.204689/ specifically to find out if the above two named trains were still running. I think however my thread title understandably invited too wide a...

    Carlisle Log Train

    Like a great many workings they still remain in the working timetable as the services are intended to resume as soon as possible. The Carlisle to Chirk log train however is not currently running in either direction either along the Settle & Carlisle line or the West Coast main line. It is true...

    Carlisle Log Train

    I dont know for certain but I would imagine the same reason that a great many freight services and passenger services are not running, and that is because of the virus pandemic we are all experiencin. At the moment there is only one booked freight a day Monday to Friday on the S&C running the...

    Named Trains 2020

    While this does not help with my original question, you raise an interesting point and highlights some of the anomaly’s when discussing named trains. Certain trains are given unofficial name such as the two you mention, the Highland also referred to as The Deerstalker, but they have never been...

    Named Trains 2020

    The Caledonian sleeper is a brand not an actual named train. I believe it was once a named train known as The Night Caledonian but that was dropped in 1996.

    Named Trains 2020

    A few years ago I posted an up to date list of the present day named, or some call them titled trains, running in the UK and with the help from one or two on here I was able to tweak it for accuracy. i decided it would be a good idea to update it but could do with some more help. From my...

    Help! What train did I see?

    Are you aware of a web site called WXNN? It is railway news site where enthusiasts submit photographs of their recent sightings. Photos of these class 90’s appeared on there the other day. It is only £10 for a year and usually captures most interesting or unusual movements, I find it invaluable.

    Best places to view trains in north west area?

    You mentioned your interest in freight in particular, so I will stick with that. I am talking now about normal times, at the moment obviously visiting stations to train spot is not allowed plus freight and passenger trains are much reduced, so this is for when things hopefully get back to more...

    Too many comments to quote but the following may be of interest to some of the posts made. United DJ’s Radio which to the best of my knowledge is internet only has many names from the past, the afore mentioned Emperor Rosko, Tony Prince, David Hamilton. Dave Lee Travis did have a show but I...

    RealTimeTrains website

    While I don’t disagree in the need to be responsible at the moment, and certainly ‘bashing’ would be unnecessary travel, but for others the railways run through a great many areas of countryside where someone could easily watch or photograph trains without coming into close proximity to others...

    Skipton - Skipton

    I couldn’t find any services that ran Skipton to Skipton but there are numerous Skipton to Skipton Broughton CS, is that what you mean? If so these are extensive carriage sidings just north of the station capable of storing up to 14 units, and as far as I am aware have carriage cleaning...
