How we looking today? I was hoping to catch one from Leeds to Manchester this evening.
Booked workings for the rest of the day:


68027
1E39 13:56 Liverpool LS-Scarborough
1F76 17:44 Scarborough-Liverpool LS
1J53 20:56 Liverpool LS-Stalybridge
5H53 21:57 Stalybridge-Longsight

68030
Diagram 5
1E37 12:56 Liverpool LS-Scarborough
1F74 16:44 Scarborough-Liverpool LS
1E51 19:56 Liverpool LS-Scarborough
1P98 22:46 Scarborough-Manchester Picc
5F86 01:32 Manchester Picc-Longsight

So for this evening you should have a choice between
68030 at 18:06 Leeds-Man Vic or
68027 at 19:06 Leeds-Man Vic.

Worth to keep an eye on how things are running during the afternoon...

Hope that helps:)

How is it looking for the operation of more Nova3 sets in December, and does anyone know when the Nova3s are expected in Middlesbrough?

The first TPE run of Nova 3 sets after being stopped came with Scarborough driver training runs on Sunday.

The Redcar route learning runs recommenced. Driver refresher runs between York and Scarborough have started again, perhaps to keep Scarborough drivers current on the 68s ahead of Nova 3 training courses?

There route learning runs to Redcar recommenced this week.

Is there any indication as to when we will see a step up from the 2 daily diagrams to something a bit more beefy

Likely to be 5 weeks time when the new timetable starts, should be 4 sets but that will come down to whether or not enough Scarborough crew are trained up in time.

TPE’s main concern is getting the Nova 1 & 2 fleets into traffic.

Gen from FB indicates that the first diagram (1E23 etc) will be covered by a 185 today.
The second diagram (1F48/1E25 etc) is allox 68027 however 1F48 was cancelled before departure from Manchester Victoria "due to a fault on this train" according to JourneyCheck.

Loco on Scarborough end of 1E25.

I don’t suppose there are any class 68’s out today? I am hoping to catch one from Liverpool to Leeds if possible and hoping for a class 802 back.

68028 on 1F74 cancelled at Leeds tonight due to ‘urgent repairs to the track’.

It has run back to York as 5F74 and is now sat in platform 11 at York.

As is becoming clear Transpennine are not planning for all sets to be in service any time soon. My guess is May 2020 at the very very earliest. Probably September.

I suspect that 185s will be working all Redcar services throughout this upcoming timetable period. It would appear likely that the full Scarborough service will be 68+Mk5 by then.

Thank you for that, appreciated. Not the best of days infrastructure wise, York ended up looking like a TPE depot!

It's absolutely awful considering they were planned originally to enter service from autumn 2018!!! I believe the first MK5's arrived in May 2018, the last of 13 sets just a few days ago and we've got a pathetic 2 sets in daily service at the minute.
