Good morning. Just had a look on XC's JourneyCheck - the 05:25 Plymouth to Newcastle is running as an HST today. It says 'Will be formed of 7 coaches' rather than say 'Will be formed of 7 coaches instead of...'

I take it this is now a regular HST diagram?
It seems to have been able to keep to the voyager timings. Lost some time between Sheffield and Wakefield due to another train, but pretty much made it all up again (although mainly due to the longer booked stop at Leeds).

No it isnt a booked diagram.
It is a booked diagram for today, XC804 - not that the diagram is running throughout. 1V62 terminating at Birmingham and working 1S53 starting there. XC02 off 1V54 empty to Plymouth, presume then onto LA. I think this diagram is due to run tomorrow as well, maybe it'll actually run throughout tomorrow.

Yes it was booked. Booked today too, XC02 was meant to work it but didn't due to flooding. 1S37 restarted from BRI with a DMU.

Morning all, first post here though I regularly use the listed diagrams.

Currently (for today) according to RealTime trains all northbound crosscountry services from Plymouth are 4 & 5 car voyager units.

I'm travelling on the 12:27 service so we shall see if that's true.

Don't know if anyone has heard anything different.

The listed diagrams in the post above yours are subject to changes due to engineering works. Today engineering works are taking place meaning no services are running between Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway. These are todays HST's looking at real time trains:

43357 + 43285
1V48 0811 Leeds-Bristol Parkway
1S47 1240 Bristol Parkway-Glasgow Central
1C85 2058 Glasgow Central-Edinburgh

43304 + 43301
1V56 0908 Edinburgh-Bristol Parkway
1S43 1540 Bristol Parkway-Edinburgh

43378 + 43303
1V60 1105 Edinburgh-Bristol Parkway
1E63 1740 Bristol Parkway-York

Ah thank you I regret travelling today rather than tomorrow in that case! Was trying to a trip entirely using HSTs, didn't realise the engineering works between Temple Meads and Parkway would affect it.

Apologies that I'm not great at asking some questions any other way but why the could the HST not have run 1S49 to Newcastle and the 15:27 be double Voyagered? At least with that, the HST can get to Neville Hill before 1E63 does (assuming there's no delays) or Craigentinny in Edinburgh at a reasonable time.

Four sets have been used a decent amount of times, usually when a set swap takes place at Plymouth from V44 or V50 etc. It is the first XC HST to Cornwall since March though.

1S49 goes to Tyne S.S. after terminating at Newcastle. So to get the HST and Voyagers in the right locations the HST would then have to go empty to Leeds and the Voyagers empty to Newcastle.

All services today reverse at Sheffield via Beighton. Yesterday XC02 on 1V52 went via the High Level Bridge at NCL.

Thanks very much, any idea on the whereabouts of XC05 and 43384 currently as I am sure I saw a picture the other day of 43384 in Laira saying it was about to have an exam but not 100% sure about that?
