Must have been some diversion it took, running via Bath Green Park is not an option these days. What route did this one use and what route would the original "Pines" have taken?

The Pines Express was a named passenger train that ran daily between Manchester and Bournemouth in England between 1910 and 1967.
Diversion of the service
The last Pines Express to run over the S&DJR was on 8 September 1962, hauled by 9F 92220 Evening Star.[6] The train was then diverted over ex-GWR metals via Oxford, Reading, Basingstoke and Southampton.


not sure of the route it took the other but it was a long winded one going from here to there then here again as the timetable has now been taken down

Here are my photos:

Class 87002 to Manchester: https://flic.kr/p/FQFZjq

Class 73109 + 73109: https://flic.kr/p/FReTbD

Great fun seeing them both! Regarding routing, the 'Pines Express' section of it went down to Stoke on Trent, then accross to Colwich Jct, Rugely Trent Valley where it turned off the WCML Trent Valley and onto the Birmingham line, passing Cannock and Walsall and then passing Bescot Stadium, Birmingham New Street, then the Cheltenham line to Warwick Parkway, then onto the Chilterns line down to Banbury and Aynho Junction and down to Oxford, then passed Didcot Curve and down the Basingstoke line avoiding Reading and through to Eastleigh where that service ended.
