Hello

Are any of these running at the moment? I want to travel on 172101 when I go out next week. I'm aware that they haven't been used much over lockdown and I'm also aware of the rumours of a move to WMR... I'm not particularly interested in their future, just whether or not they've been out recently and if they'll be out next week. :)

Thanks

Think I noticed this unit on a Trust report the other day. Will try to look out for it, but I have seen hits that the Chiltern 172s are moving to WMR to join the rest of the class 172 fleet. Can't confirm if true or not.

According to a Facebook group, the 172/1s will only temporarily be with WMR to plug the gap for EMR 170 transfers and delays with 196s, and are due to return to Chiltern for December 2021.

I believe they have been sat in the depot over lockdown, the transfer to WMR would make sense as they dont fit that well in the Chiltern fleet.
