Morning all! Day 1 of a UK Rover. First off was a ferry trip on the Irish Ferries Ulysses from Dublin Ferryport to Holyhead. From Holyhead I boarded the 1301 to Manchester Piccadilly which uses the recently introduced 2nd loco hauled diagram on Arriva Trains Wales North Wales Coast Services. At Manchester I boarded a delayed Transpennie Express service bound for Middlesborough as far as York This proved to be a major blessing in disguise as due to a failed train in the Leeds area we were diverted via Castleford. The service from Manchester I had planned to get missed my connecting service at York by 10 minutes. With about 10 minutes to spare at York, I boarded the 1600 Kings Cross - Aberdeen Virgin Trains East Coast service to Dundee, from there I boarded the Caledonian Sleeper service back south.
