Assuming you are travelling tomorrow (if not, change the date):Just a quick question. I am travelling on this service from wigan and wondering if it is a pendolino or voyager?

I'm planning a round trip from here in Wales (FGW (Fishguard) or AYW (Aberystwyth), I'm trying to find a postcode that will make NRE show trains from both), using the WCML in one direction to Carlise, then heading over the Carlise - Settle line and making my way back from, probably, Leeds. I really don't want to be on a noisy, claustrophobic Voyager with no window to look out of, but the map on Vrigin's website says their services to Scotland are a mix of Pendos and Voyagers.
*I am particularly interested in one I've found that goes from Euston to (I think) Edinbrough via Birmingham (leaves Birmingham N.S. at 16:20), I'd be planning to board it at Birmingham.
Is what Open Train Times says the service is timed for actually what's booked for Virgin services then? I know on ATW, services that OTT says are timed for one type of unit are sometimes actually booked for a different type (timed for Pacers, booked for 150 in the case of 16:04 off Cardiff to Fishguard I think).http://www.opentraintimes.com/schedule/C57201/2012/5/30
Should be a 390.
Or go up to Warrington on ATW and join a Euston-Glasgow 390 from there.
(FGW (Fishguard) or AYW (Aberystwyth), I'm trying to find a postcode that will make NRE show trains from both)
So how do I find out which is booked for a given Virgin service?
Thanks. I assume that applies in the other direction as well, since my plans have changed a bit and I'll be going the other way around the circle and taking the 10:49 off Carlisle (a Glasgow - Euston direct service I beleive) on 5th June to Preston (from where I'm planning to go to Manchester to pick up the Milford Haven service which connects to Fishguard).All Euston-Glasgow (direct) trains are 390s.
Say what? 390s took the same route as the 221s I thought.
