One less 153 required for a pointless operation like that...is one more that could be help Central provide something that's slightly approaching a decent service in Lincolnshire...FGWFan said:Those flaming PPMs are threatening to take DMUs off Stourbridge Town - Junction! I'd rather a 153 than a PPM on that any day!
Oh yeah, Central actually care about that route - even get 170s on there when they feel like it hock: (always used to happen on one particular evening train - unit was then booked to work to Donny and back...a route from which 170s were/are barred - time to get on the phone to the bus company... :roll: ). As for the rest of the network around Lincs...I think they've not yet realised they're responsible for running a service on there .AlexS said:As far as the stourbridge flyer goes, you won't really tell the difference between a 153 and a PPM anyway. As for shufting it over to Lincolnshire, you've now got a load of 158s and 156s working Notts to Lincoln haven't you? :P
Think 'peak time' is a concept we're unfamiliar with in Lincolnshire . Not that Central would bother to do anything about it even if we did have one!AlexS said:I notice that they have started running 153s in multiple with 150s now on the peak time services
Neither have we hock:FGWFan said:I've no experience of CT in Lincolnshire...
Being dead pedantic now - Skegness is pretty far into Lincolnshire...so you just possibly did experience CT in Lincs .FGWFan said:...the nearest I've got to there in recent years is Nottingham, with Skegness reached a few years ago.
