    09:25 Liverpool to Newcastle passed me near Newton-le-Willows running nearly 20 late. Let's hope it maintains the rest of its schedule.

    I just put what was given on the Facebook group. In this case, it was put down before the diagram was cancelled.

    Well if it is a Nova 2 set it is goign to run out of electricity wants it reaches Manchester Victoria, so it won't maintain the rest of that schedule. :p

    There are explicitly workings on and off of Ardwick in the first week of the new timetable as noted in the analysis I prepared upthread.

    Are you able to guess which out of the 10 diagrams the 397s will be running? I didn't think there were 6 397s ready for passenger service.

    There were two 397s parked at Longsight around mid-day.

    001 and 004 are at Longsight. 005 and 007 are at Preston. 002 and 008 are at Polmadie.

    003 and 005 are seeing the most use for passenger service.

    Not very quick - looks like there are only two 397 diagrams and they are struggling to cover those. 185s covering the release of 350s for the time being - 185149 working 1S32 0607 Manchester Airport to Edinburgh (booked from Ardwick this week so not expected 397) - the next one (1S35 0710 Manchester Airport to Glasgow Central) looks like it has come from Ardwick instead of Longsight. The Lancaster starter which works the next one is cancelled (as is 1S38 0807 Manchester Airport to Edinburgh) now starting at Piccadilly so perhaps only one 397 out today.

    Are 397005 or 397007 likely to be running tomorrow. From previous postings they are at Preston and needed for my Christmas travel diagrams from Edinburgh.

    Just to check, is that 350/401, 350/404, 350/405 and 350/410 that have left to date?

    397005 has now gone back to Longsight and 397007 is being used for static training.

    This is extremely tight and LNWR must be getting very agitated

    Huh? If the 397s aren't ready, the 350s still leave and 185s are put on the Manchester to Scotland trains (which is what is already happening). LNR have nothing to worry about.
