    Northern Promotional 156s

    Hello, Does anyone remember which Northern 156 carried the Ravenglass & Eskdale promotional livery when it had the old Serco colour scheme? I remember riding a 156 in November with this scheme, but I cannot remember what number it was (I have a vague recollection of a 15649x, but I can't put a...

    Old Timetables

    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone had any copies of First North Western timetables 2, 11 and 15 knocking around somewhere? I need these three as they are the only ones that I am missing (I've farmed the rest from the Wayback Machine). For reference, 2 was Manchester to Preston and...

    King's Cross to Liverpool Street - possible in 11 minutes?

    Hello. I was wondering if it was possible to get from King's Cross (from the train) to Liverpool Street (on the train) in 11 minutes? Just that I'm down there on the 14th December and I want to go between these two services: ->...

    TPE Bolton Arrangements

    Why do TPE only do pick up/set down only stops at Bolton on their Manchester-Scotland services? It seems a little odd, that is why I'm asking. Thanks.

    Did BR plan to electrify any further routes before privatisation stopped them?

    Hello again, I was just wondering if BR had any plans to electrify any non-electrified routes in the mid-late 1990s before privatisation occured? Just out of curiosity. That is all.

    Pacers on Yorkshire Coast Line

    So, on Sunday, I caught sight of 144009 at Doncaster working a Sheffield-Scarborough service (this one: ) and it was rather odd, since there was a 170 stored in Platform 2 at Doncaster which seemed to not be doing anything, and...

    Northern Class 321/322 Withdrawal

    It seems that 321901 has gone up to Heaton for warm storage, supposedly: Is this the start of the withdrawal of Northern's 321/322 fleet, or is it just a one-off for now?

    Northern guard query

    While travelling up to Scarborough on Saturday, I noticed that in both directions the train had 2 guards onboard - on the way there for the whole distance, and on the way back south of Bridlington. It probably weren't an RPO as I saw both members of staff selling tickets and operating the doors...

    NoMorePacers' occasional rambles

    Alright, after reading another user's trip report thread (cactustwirly's to be specific ;)), I got inspired to make my own thread, about my occasional trips on the railway. I don't get out much (my family don't have money to do it and my mother doesn't yet want me to go out on my own - that may...

    What, in your opinion, was the best TOC of all time since privatisation began?

    I remember seeing a thread about the best operator on the ECML, so I decided to extend this to TOCs in general, with a poll linked down below. It most certainly won't be conclusive, as I doubt anyone has ridden with every single TOC to have existed, but it may be interesting*. Due to there...

    NoMorePacers plans to go pacer hunting

    With possibly the most ironic title in history, and with the recent trip report craze, 'am planning to travel. More specifically, pacers. Want to clear the Northern pacers before they see the cutting torch. Where can I get them, apart from in the Humberside area (because I can easily get those...
