    Anyone know why it's running in service with only 4 coaches instead of the usual six coaches and how long Grand Central expect to use it in this formation.

    Just fancy a trip on Saturday on it if possible but I like to know what services it's likely to be on if anyone knows?

    Sometimes a coach can be taken out of the usual 5 coach formation. Last time it was because two coaches needed tire turning but it could be due to any fault. Shouldn't be too bad this week as half term is over now. On Saturday this set will probably work the 0645 from Sunderland (A60) 1123 from London King's Cross (N22) and 1731 from Sunderland (A69). Hope this has helped
