    Spotted a couple of Thameslink 387s going through Leighton Buzzard at 1110 today going from Wembley to Crewe it seems. Any idea why this would be happening?

    Testing and milage accumulation - it has been going on for ages. Operations are based on Bletchley depot and tend to run Bletchley-Willesden-Crewe-Willsden-Bletchley and repeat
