Morning

Just out of interest, I’ve noticed the following strange workings into London Euston this (Sunday) morning and wondered does anybody know what they’re in aid of?

1T10 06:30 Wolves - Euston
1T11 05:31 Piccadilly - Euston
1T12 05:50 Liverpool - Euston

Had no idea that was on this weekend (shows how much attention I pay:D) but that seems like a logical reason! Fair play Avanti!

They have done it for years, there are specific instructions for NR to finish blocks early for them to run.

Thanks. Looks like it didn’t go 100% to plan with the Manchester one being diverted via the West Mids, unless that was to pick up passengers from the cancelled 1T10 from Wolves?

Yes it was to cover the cancellation.

The marathon runners had to collect their vest numbers from the Excel centre yesterday
Given London hotel prices (and Covid) they may then have headed home to return today?

Also perhaps friends and family wanting to cheer them on?
