The Live Departure Board today shows a 16:23 service from Edinburgh to Lodnon Euston, calling only at Preston at 18:51 before arriving at 21:27. In theory, but in reality, it arrived at 22:48 having left Edinburgh 30 mins late. So what is this mysterious train? Virgin running an additional service to cope with demand or perhaps a celeb chartering a service? Unlikely, as the train was scheduled to set down and pick up at Preston. All the more mysterious, as there was a 11:33 from Euston to Edinburgh earlier, calling only at Preston at 13:48, which arrived at 16:49, 40 late.
