I've decided to create this thread, because I've had a couple of people complaining that I post updates. Examples of this can be found below

Example thread 1
Example thread 2

For the benefit of those who would like to find more times and allocations etc. so updates mean more to them. I'm creating this thread as a gen source resource :) So no more moaning when I post updates on time I got from these groups! I'll get the ball rolling :)

47 - Gen Good group before the spambots got it :-<
60 - Gen Might get some fleet lists for Class 60s. Very good for updates and you learn the codes + workings quickly. 10/10
Anglia - Gen Friendly gen group with lots of times for the GEML+ region. 10/10
Blue Pullman Gen Times + disc for the Blue Pullman
Brush - 47 Last time I had a look, somebody posted all the 47 movements daily, very useful group. 10/10
