Just got an email advising same.
Some Stirling work from LNER to reinstate these services.
(Sorry, couldn’t resist)
Are the ditched Leeds services coming back too?
Their press release this evening only mentioned Stirling.
I’ve been told that a 91 & mk4 set will be going to Stirling on December the 10th but I don’t know if that means E03 and S22 will be electric from then on.
Seems odd for a couple of reasons, I didn’t think the trains were cleared for Falkirk. The platform is short and mk4s don’t have SDO. (Or do they?). I thought the hst had grandfather rights.
The short platforms on the Skipton run are coped with by locking Coach B out of use north of Leeds.
Thanks. I did think a mk4 set operated on a short platform but wasn’t sure. Same with haymarket, I don’t recall them stopping there southbound pre platform extension.
Interesting , will see i thats the case .
LNER stated on twitter (can't find it now) that the services would remain HST-operated for the time being.
As above, it would be highly unlikely for the first 91 + mk4 set to run over the line be in passenger service.
I assume you can do local door if absolutely necessary with Mk4s?
Probably, but then you'd have like 5 minute dwell times at stations!
So the HST is a better option for now until the 800s are introduced
HST operated for now.
Sure there'll be a MK4 ECS test run in due course.
They will need to gauge clear Stirling Haymarket for Mark 4's first. Given that Class 800s will soon take over I doubt they will bother.
The cancellation of some Kings Cross - Leeds services, which came into force at the same time as the cancellation of the through Stirling service, is to continue until at least 29th January 2019.
