Just wondering how many rotations of staff the avid enthusiast would get through if doing the whole hog. :)

Sorry if in wrong forum.

I'm not 100% sure, so don't quote me on this, but I'd have thought crew legs would be something like:-

Aberdeen-Edinburgh
Edinburgh-Newcastle
Newcastle-Leeds
Leeds-Birmingham
Birmingham-Bristol
Bristol-Plymouth
Plymouth-Penzance

You don't need to have a base/depot at a place you use a relieving point. I have absolutely no idea on the specifics of XC trains, but I have been booked to relieve drivers at plenty of places where there is no depot.

This was what I remember happening when I travelled on 1V60 from end to end last September, although I'm not sure if Plymouth crew do Bristol-Penzance.
