Hi,

I havent checked the above headcodes in question, but it isn't uncommon for there to be two separate trains with the same headcode running at the same time, for example at Crewe last year I aksed the man with the TRUST computer what stock was on the 1T22 (1822 FO Euston - Crewe relief - booked for a seven), he put 1T22 into the system and it came up with three choices, a Thameslink Brighton to Bedford service, and also some train in W. Yorkshire, as well as the 1T22 I was asking about- (which in the end was a pendo!!)

Try to put every UK train to a 4 digits headcode and you'll get why's that. There are more trains with same h/c but each are in different regions/districts.

The specifics are wrong, but the destinations are almost right.

H = Cambridge/Ely/Kings Lynn.
B = Stansted Airport (1B-- is the StanEx while 2B-- is a stopper).
T = Chingford.
O = Cheshunt/Hertford East (either route).
U = Enfield Town.

You also missed one out. S = Bishops Stortford.

While most of our workings are Class 2, there are very occasional Class 1 services to/from Cambridge and Hertford East. We had a Class 1 train to Hertford East under the old timetable which called at Tott Hale, Broxbourne and then all stations along the branch. It was booked for a single Cl315 and provided one of the few opportunities to really let rip in one. Rattling across Cheshunt Junction flat-chat at 75mph was great fun.

Don't know about the others, but 1B00 is now the 16:49 LST-STN StanEx.
