    Evening all,

    About 15 minutes ago (2315), I saw an ATW 175 pulling in (judging by the slow speed) to Stoke-on-Trent station from the Manchester direction.

    Had a look on the live departures/arrivals and saw nothing so assume it must be diverted on its way to somewhere.

    Any idea where it's off to and why its been diverted?

    I remember a while back (probably 18 months ago) seeing a service to Shrewsbury advertised late one evening, so I imagine its something similar.


    Thanks.

    Sometimes engineering works on the Crewe-Stockport line mean Shrewsbury-Manchester services are diverted from Crewe via Stoke, and reverse [ and vv.]

    Judging by the time of your observation, it could have been the 2235 Piccadilly-Shrewsbury.

    UPDATE - I've just checked the ATW website, and this is exactly what is happening this week, with a rail-replacement bus from Wilmslow to Shrewsbury!
