My last train was on Sunday, from York. Not sure what happened, but it was a total mess up. All the XC trains were delayed, one by over 2 hours.
I was on the Edinburgh - Reading one, which has usually departed a while before i arrive at the station, was running around 25 minutes late. Got off at Wakefield Westgate though!

Spent a lot of time recently in Gordon Hill, so tonight I was again coming home. Managed to get the 1903 which was 15 late, but didn’t realise it had been cleared to run fast to Finsbury Park, so actually ended up only a few minutes down. Exhilarating... I guess.

And it wasn’t Geo driving it! Again!

Shame he doesn't know his rota enough in advance to let us know one he's driving a specific one, then have a little TT-F party in a train being driven by a TT-F member :p

I'd bring along a portable piano and play Sawyer's Tune EXTREMELY LOUD just behind the main cab.

Took a journey on one of SWR's (or so they say) class 707s. Overall very nice, but there was a lot of train crew on board...

Well... I've been travelling for a few days again,

Tuesday 17th October
1615 Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston on 390137.
2115 London Euston to Fort William, hauled by 92033 as far as Edinburgh, where 73970 took over. First time I've been in the sleeping car of a sleeper. Didn't get to sleep until after Edinburgh. The carriage I was in was right next to the Loco until Edinburgh, and Class 92s are rather loud things!

Wednesday 18th October
1212 Fort William to Mallaig on 156485 and 156499.
1605 Mallaig to Crianlarich on 156485 and 156499 again.
2014 Crianlarich to Oban on 156446. This service was about 10 minutes late due to the late departure of the Southbound train from Crianlarich, which itself was delayed as it had to wait for the train from Oban (with which it joins) to arrive.

Thursday 19th October
0857 Oban to Glasgow Queen Street on 156499
1215 Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley on 170432
1428 Edinburgh Waverley to Aberdeen, powered by 43299 and 43257
1726 Aberdeen to Inverness, on 170457, 158723 and 158719. 158719 was detached at Inverurie however.
2044 Inverness to London Euston, hauled by 67003 as far as Edinburgh, where 92018 took over. I did sleep rather well this time, I think the few beers and being further from the Locomotive helped!

Friday 20th October
0840 Euston Square to London Paddington on the Circle line.
1006 London Paddington to Penzance, powered by 43185 (in Intercity colours) and 43149.
2145 Penzance to London Paddington, hauled by 57604, in the Brunswick Green livery.

Saturday 21st October
0521 London Paddington to Euston Square on the Circle line.
0655 London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly on 390043.

As much as I enjoyed it, I'll be glad to be in my own bed again tonight, especially because it won't be rocking and rolling! :lol:
