    Hello all,

    Just writing my Summer 2011 timetable for Simsig and am on Gloucester sim at the moment. I have entered all the 170s in on the Hereford <-> Birmingham services in, but then it clicked, wasn't there (or is there still) a 150 on the Hereford turn on a Summer Saturday just gone? If so do you know at least any times it left New Street? I can work out the diagrams from there if I have that...but I would guess maybe it's the one that later does the 1619 Bromsgrove Shuttle?

    Also, question 2, what is 5T98 Tyseley Depot - Gloucester all about :? I guess it's some LM unit of some form and it terminates in Platform 4 at Gloucester but can't see what it does after...next trains to use 4 is an XC to Nottingham (with a minute stop at Gloucester) then a GW HST. What unit works under 5T98 and what does it do after arriving at Gloucester?


    Any help will be appreciated!


    Cheers,

    James.

    5T98 was a 172 training path for Worcs Drivers.
    Re current 150's via Bromsgrove: Sat only 09.56 Wos - Nst, Ecs to Bromsgrove then 11.## back to New St then Ecs to Worcs (2 car). 15.54 Wos - Nst then 16.49 Nst - Hfd (3 car). Both diagrams should be 172 by now. Not sure as to Sunday diagrams but presume they are 172 now. Post Dec 150 diagrams already posted elsewhere.

    172's are not used in service outside of the Snow Hill Lines yet, so I imagine its still 150, or will now be a 170.

    Thank you for that, 5T98 must still be in but not used if there is no return path that I can see.

    As regards to 150s/172s, mind I'm writing a Summer 2011 TT when a handful of 150s were still flying around

    Thank you very much for the help on the diagram, much appreciated :D

    Last Saturday the AM diagram via Bromsgrove was a 150, PM was a 172. The previous week both were 172's. Sunday 150 diagram via Bromsgrove has been a 172 for several weeks now.
