Hi guys
So i know the Vivarail 230's have proved to be rather problematic since their introduction.
RTT says there are only a few return trips a day at random intervals with RRB's on an hourly basis. Does anyone know when this will be sorted?

It's COVID related, not 230 related, due I believe to staffing availability. I don't know when it will be fixed, I'm afraid, though it is worth noting that the "random" timetable isn't actually random but tallies with peak demand (to the extent that the line has peak demand) e.g. school runs. On a Saturday it's just two-hourly on roughly the old timetable but with buses in the opposite hour.
