    I believe LNWR have plans for Manchester Airport? And will the May timetable change mean Crewe Crew do go via Birmingham to MKC?

    Horsham, Orpington, Gillingham, Cricklewood, St Albans and Luton have been active TL depots since May.

    Peterborough is a mixed TL/GN depot now mostly TL although they retain GN uniforms
    Cambridge will be the same I guess

    So had my interview on the 4th of July for the MDD role at heaton Newcastle for Northern , 4 days later recieved a confirmation email that I had passed interview, only just had a phone call last night at 17:50 to invite me to Manchester this Friday for testing - talk about short notice had nothing through the post as in information pack etc just a email which followed the phone call with all the information in....... surely 4 days notice is not enough - now going to have to speak with work in regards to day off sort child care etc... lady on the phone had said there could be another date for testing back end of November but unsure if this will hinder my opportunity for the position if I select the later testing date ?? Anyone shed any light on the matter thanks

    Pedantry edit suggestion - Gloucester actually has TMs and Conductors, albeit all in one link. They are (currently) a separate grade

    Gloucester only has nine with no purpose to employ more I believe.

    It's easy for us, they're all one depot and we use as required. Just have to remember the actual TMs get first shout for the HSS jobs

    PAD-Malvern via GCR, Pad-BTM via box, Pad-Cdf. Swindon-Gcr, Btm-Severn Beach, Taunton and Westbury. Westbury-Swindon via Melksham.
    150, 153, 158/9, 165/6 IET and HST

    Conductors don't sign HSTs (but do IETs) and some are starting to learn Paddington

    Interesting about Conductors. Will they be paid TM rate?

    Swindon needs adding as a driver depot for GWR as of tomorrow (27th)

    EDIT: also Heathrow Express should probably be removed entirely - they're now effectively under GWR Paddington, although HEX drivers are strictly speaking a separate grade at present.

    Although by rights it's not part of WMT train crew. But shouldn't Stourbridge Junction appear under a driver depot being as both Drivers and Guards are based there for the Stourbridge Town work.

    For ScotRail, both Corkerhill and Shields depots are driver depots also. Other than that the lists are perfect.

    I can remember around six or seven years ago seeing a job advert for a conductor at Taunton. Have GWR moved the coductor booking on station away from Taunton in recent years?
