The Azumas are in service, Leeds - London. There was one on the 13:45 service ex Leeds yesterday. So at last we've got a bit of new kit oop north. Other signs of optimism are the 170's, they'll do nicely thank you) , the refurbed 156's, AND 180 TE Express sets doing the local Leeds - Huddersfield shuttles. We've still got the Pacers but they are 'diminishing' How the hell can a crew face a full shift on Leeds -Southport (hundreds of stops) with a 2 car Pacer?
