    Different Driver Depots Route and Traction cards

    AIUI Picc crews learned Chat Moss when the 323s started going that way (I don’t believe Vic or Wigan sign them, or if they do it’s a fairly recent development) Barrow/Windermere work started with the 195s, shared with Barrow and possibly Wigan/Blackpool/Vic crew.

    Derby and Cardiff mainline depots

    Derby wise it’ll be mainline from day 1 as a qualified driver I believe, up and down to London and Sheffield. Some local work to Matlock/Crewe etc but only in certain links, most work at Derby is mainline I believe.

    Fastest Absolute Block Line
