Does anyone know which saltburn to darlington trains are booked for a 156 on a weekday?
Ah yes, Sunday is the Saltburn train. However before the timetable change there was a 22.xx (might have been bang on 22.00) which went from Newcastle to Middlesbrough via Durham. More often than not, this would be made up from the last train in from Morpeth, so 142 just about always. Used this train a good few times, and it did seem to be quite popular for those going back to Durham and Darlington after a day out (and few drinks) in Newcastle.The last one from Newcastle to Middlesbrough via the main line only runs on a Saturday night (So). Through the week it runs as far as Darlington then ECS to York. There is a Newcastle to Saltburn service via Durham that runs a little earlier on a Sunday night only.
This on Saturdays only? Sure the one before the timetable change used to run all week.Now it leaves 2150 and arrives Boro around 2317. Like you say quite a few jolly folk on that one.
