I am hoping to ride a 125 on Grand Central on Sunday 29th July, either from Sunderland to Northallerton or vice-versa. I currently reckon on riding the 1206 from Northallerton to Sunderland. Is this diagram usually a 125 as far as you know? I would prefer to ride a 125 here as I can do a 180 in West Yorkshire.
I normally get the 0959 from eaglescliffe on a sunday which is 99% of the time a HST. last time i got the later one it was a 180. but i suppose it's whats diagrammed in for the day. i'm sure some of the GC guys on here would be more best suited to confirm or deny. If i remember rightly the one you are after when the 0959 passes it is normally a HST.
Many thanks MCR! As the 0948 from King's Cross, arriving Northallerton 1206 and Sunderland 1321, is operated by HST-2, I should be safe! I shall travel down from Newcastle to Northallerton on the EC 1028, as this will make a change from TPE andXC, which I can ride in Manchester, and have done in the last 7 weeks anyway. I am encouraged that day returns from Newcastle to Northallerton are valid via Sunderland.
