    Hi all,

    I know it's a pain in the neck, but I couldn't find the information I wanted. Anyone got the gen on what time I can expect to get a 121 on the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury line? I know it's usually the evening peak at least, but didn't they recently get a second one up and running so as to release a 165 all day?

    Asking as I've got Tuesday off next week and I've still not done Princes Risborough to Aylesbury Vale Parkway, so I fancy going out and getting it done. I could leave it until a proposed ALR in 2012, but I don't know how long I can leave that annoying gap on my map!

    Thanks in advance all.

    I was going to ask the same question about ATW's 121 actually.

    As you'll see from the diagram there isn't a 121 running all day, only in the morning and evening peaks and you'll have to change at Aylesbury if you want to go to AVP as they don't run through from the Risborough branch.

    Barring failures, you'll get 121034 (the green one) if you go on Tuesday. The blue bubble is at Tyseley having some work done on it.

    Enjoy :D

    Cheers RPM, might make a point of going down for it then on Tuesday. I knew I had to change at Aylesbury, my post wasn't too obvious on that though.

    Thanks for the gen on which one it'll be. Now to check and see if the diagrams match up with journey times for getting home in time for the last bus.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Just for reference, Nowhere Heath is the name of a fictional place in an episode of Thunderbirds. Which one I can't recall right now, but at the time I laughed and felt it worthy of my location for the forums I frequent. Longer version of the story available on demand via PM.

    As for why the name's extended in the fashion I have it as, it's as close to writing it in two-tone effect as I could think of at the time. Imagine if you will the first part being a high tone, the middle a low tone, and the end part in a high tone again. Strange, I know, but it still makes me smile when I look at it :)
