Hi guys,
I saw a brand new Class 185 TPE go passed my house at Droylsden, near Ashton Under Lyne before, which is highly unusual. I really want to go and get a few pics of it, so I need to know what time it is coming back from wherever it was going (towards Stalybridge), to Victoria.

Hurry! :D

Thanks,

That might have been a test run, but I think that would have been reported on the groups.

That doesnt explain why it was going through Drolysden though! 185's are very naff.... When the 3/4 doors open and theres a breeze outside, all the cold air comes in, and pushes the hot out, and causes the pax to become really uncomfortable!
Last week I had more rateable traction on the TransPennine route than ever in my life, Ive only ever been on decent stock through my home station of Ashton once before, but in the last week ive done it 2 times, with 4 times thru' Staly. You cannot beat flailing at full toss thru' Stalyvegas on a Blackburn to Llandudno ecs (*via Hudds and Stoke on Trent!!!) (with permission of course!)
