HSTs WILL run and its unlikely the XC 90 will be out,
--

North of Lancaster WCML shut - Voyagers over S&C.

==============================

West Coast:

No Proper Diagrams.

All Weekend Liverpool - Runcorn is closed. 57 drags from Crewe via Manchester.

Reading various sources its understood that at least a single Class 90 will do a Saturday Holyhead diagram due to no Double Voyagers. I'm not 100% sure if this will happen. But would be worth a look. :)

Depending on wether there are enough Pendolinos or not, 90s may appear on Birmingham/Liverpool/Macclesfield routes. Again not sure if this will happen, but I'm sure at least a few sets will be out.

Stockport - Manchester Piccadilly shut. All Manchester trains divert via Styal/Wilmslow. Hourly service from Stockport (Possibly Macclesfield not sure) - Euston.

Drags Nuneaton - Birmingham??


West Coast 90s tend to be a last-minute thing so don't blame me if it doesn't run. XC HSTs WILL run. XC 90 is unlikely to run!

Happy Spotting :)

I think (or at least hope considering that he did the Holyhead 47's meet!) Chaz know's as much as you and I that the 90 won't be going all the way up to Holyhead, but it is still able to work the Holyhead diagram upto Crewe before being replaced by a 57 between Crewe and Holyhead.

Yes he does and the wording was correct, it's still a Holyhead diagram.

I suppose it could be argued it's a Crewe diagram but that'd be pedantic and also cause confusion as the ultimate destination of the train is Holyhead.

No point arguing over this minor issue though. But of course a 90 did go to Llandnudno the other week as mentioned earlier ;)
