Close , Longtown not Longsight
Ah Longtown, Carlisle, does that mean long time storage or just secure storage?
Hopefully @Mike McNiven or someone will be out with camera.
Just secure and might be joined a couple of new sets soon as everything is finished now and I think Spain want the room
There is no timing load for a 397 yet.
It's just a timing load and doesn't reflect the actual booked stock
Today’s run not happening due to some paperwork issues
Have these units come with normal in Spain, paperwork for everything issues then?
It's paper work not received from Network Rail
Paperwork was received this afternoon so tomorrow’s run 003 and 004 is on
397s to Glasgow tomorrow (25 June)....
Brilliant, thanks for these! Should be able to see one at Central tomorrow then
Great to see the 397s come up to Central station tomorrow. Going into town anyway so that will be provide me with a good opportunity to get some photos and a video.
Quite, all we need is it to be cancelled last minute!
Two units (coupled) seen heading northbound just south of Wigan NW about 10 minutes ago (approx 0830). Hate to break it to you, though, they seem to be running in a path that's only as far as Carlisle...
Oh well, c'est la vie! Yes, looks like the original path hasn't run and they've ammended it to terminate at Carlisle as usual.
Guess still have to wait to see one in Glasgow then.
I was just speaking to someone on the train and they think they are going to Glasgow
It seems to be that the RTT link is a mixture between the two. Where one drops out, the other path seems to have times at the correct time. E.g. Grayrigg expected time is 0919 on 309Z and on 311Z the train passed at 0920. Looks like a mishmash of paths maybe has occurred
Okay, well I'll keep a look out in Glasgow Central at 1130-ish. Would be nice to see a 397 in the flesh as it were.
309Z and 311Z are completely different trains - isn't 311Z a Class 68 + LHCS set?
The 68/mk5A rake is normally out earlier. The 397 was running in the Carlisle path yesterday and was today until Carnforth when it seems to have switched to the Glasgow path.
Yes, I see what you mean, but if 309Z and 311Z are really the same train, what was it that left Crewe Carriage Sidings at c.0739? As for the train which did actually run north, it apparently arrived at Glasgow Central c.1131 and departed c.1206. Can anyone confirm it was 2x397 which made it to Glasgow? That's what Mathew S reported the formation as being when it passed Wigan NW.
I can confirm two 397s arrived safe and sound at Central to a waiting crowd of fellow enthusiasts with their cameras. Will post photos later.
Is there a target date for these to begin service? We wait the 350/4s eagerly in the West Midlands.
Through Standish at 15.00pm. Looking very nice
Very nice. Sadly I missed it.
Presumably 397s will be back in Glasgow soon enough though.
Do look good , look like a high speed train but not quite . Do wonder when they are in service?
It was supposed to be Spring! Perhaps by December some will have carried passengers.
I very much like the look of them but they need yellow ends 390 style, all the TPE stock does.
I think that would spoil the livery and aesthetics tbh
