    Hi, I'm looking for some info regarding VT's Manchester driver depot:

    - Routecard (what routes are signed, diversions, core route, links...)
    - Work hours (earliest start, latest finish)
    - What's a typical shift like?
    - Any future plans or changes regarding the franchise change etc...

    Many thanks :)

    Core is 390
    Manchester Piccadilly - London Euston via Crewe & Macclesfield (including via Norton Bridge; Hixon; Birmingham New Street and the Northampton Loop)
    Longsight shed
    Diversions include Styal loop, Northampton loop, via Alsager & via Grand Junction
    Go up the links and add 221, Crewe - Holyhead and some other bits as well, Preston perhaps. Not entirely sure though
    Earliest start and latest finish around the 3am mark. Possibly some nights
    London and back the lion’s share of the work in the lower links
