Does anyone have details of what happens on the workings of these trains. The next Edinburgh-Southampton run is due on 21st April, but what happens to the empty stock after use. I have seen several videos of this train on the southern section of the ECML but never seen any timing details in this area.
Presumably a single one is now hauling it?
Err, not sure now as its lost another 100+ minutes due to diesel traction problems and has just reported passing Chesterfield a whopping four hours and three minutes late! I presume the connection at Southampton is an "always makes" leap.... isn't it...?!
Was going to see it near Tyseley so any idea if or when it passed late.
Well the Oriana is underway... ...perhaps the cruise saver could terminate at Southampton Airport Parkway now?
I thought that was a wind-up but on checking the ship's webcam at http://www.pocruises.com/Cruise-Ships/Oriana/Ship-Webcams/ it would appear you are correct. I genuinely feel sorry for those on board the train - it looks like the ship's next stop is the Azores on Sunday.
Yes it is live. The charter hasn't got there yet. It was also advertised as taking passengers to a cruise on 'Ventura', which is due to depart at 19.00.
Hopefully the late departure was due to being held for these passengers? What time did the train actually arrive?
If there happened to be any enthusiasts on board that were going on holiday, they may well have cleared more traction than expected today!
