Grand Central ran one of its HST sets on 1D71 10.48 KCX-BDI and 1A67 15.37 BDI-KCX. This was to enable platform gauging to be undertaken en route during the booked platform dwell times. 43467 and 43465 were the powercars, everything appears to have passed smoothly. Wonder what implications it has for future workings?

If you must use station codes, please add the station names as well, not everyone knows what you are talking about.

Also, if you must use station codes, use the correct ones. It's KGX.

Oh dear that was a bit of a schoolboy error, must put my glasses on next time!

Surely they will use the HSTs (with more seats) on the most premium services (ie Sunderland) so that they maximise their ORCATS steal from the York to London flow.

Might just be for operational flexibility. Of course you're right, the ORCATS from York will be a lot more than Doncaster (or at least you'd think it is).
