Until a couple of years ago, there were four daily 'binliners' to Calvert
(from Bristol, Northolt, Dagenham and Cricklewood), but the Bristol
and Dagenham trains have both ceased, leaving the Northolt and
Cricklewood trains:

Northolt - runs three days a week, operated by DB, using either a 66 or a 59/2

Cricklewood - runs daily (Mon-Fri), operated by FHH, using a 66/5

So they all go via Aylesbury now? Is the route via Bicester disused except for Chiltern empty stock moves?

Also what days are the Northolt one?

The only (irregular) freight booked to run north of Bicester
is 6V49 Calvert to Thorney Mill, which is empty box wagons.
