The precedent is set due to Eagle doing Crewe - Milton Keynes Central on page #2.And that, surely, is the same thing as the Crewe-Euston one which we had in the last round? Fast train, missing out a heck of a lot of stations?
Reversing is fine, such as at Manchester Airport because you're not doubling back. At Lime Street any reversal would involve doubling back through Edge Hill so it wouldn't be allowed.Starting at Buckshaw Parkway we continue to Chorley.
Another question: when is reversing out of a station OK? It was disallowed earlier at Lime St. but not at Selby.
This is quoted from rule 2, which in this case validates any fast service, so long as it is included in the timetable. In other words, if a player wishes to travel from Newcastle to Kings Cross, they can, provided they say "The Flying Scotsman" or something along those lines. (There'd even be an "A long wait..." bonus!)If the station is served by a faster service along any passenger line, it is valid provided that you quote the operator and route
