    No idea about tickets - but the following are currently visible in Real Time - seems an earlier departure than normal too:

    Realtime Trains - 1Z22 0602 York to Edinburgh

    Realtime Trains - 1Z24 1540 Edinburgh to York

    Did it not run York to Darlington in under even time? Obviously it's easy to do on this stretch of line but nevertheless it was on the fast and took full advantage.

    It lost time at Low Fell and Heaton, leaving 32 down and was half an hour down at Widdrington. Missing a 20 minute loop at Wooden Gate pulled back most of that, but it was on time by Chathill and 8 early by Tweedmouth. Good running.

    44871 through Banbury on the Shrewsbury trip, just a few minutes after Clun Castle heading the other way.

    Don't quite know why it was put through the loop platform 1 instead of given a straight run through P2, given there was no other traffic around.
    I would think it unlikely it's a gauging issue as the, presumably much less gauge-friendly, Clun Castle went through P2 just a few weeks ago.

    Destination in sight, 44871 disturbs the peace of a dull Shropshire day passing Shifnal churchyard, on time just before 12:30.

    Certainly wasn’t just ticking over pulling out of the loop at Drem. Diesel was going like the clappers…

    Two for the price of one today at Tackley but in the dullest conditions possible. 44871 going north and 20 minutes later 7029 heading south to Bath. Clun didn't open up until it was just past me so not my day.

    44871 at Wellington with the return train to Paddington. Running about half an hour late at this point behind a late TfW service from Holyhead.

    Half an hour down heading south through Alnmouth. For once I don't mind the bloke in the red coat.

    It's the first time I've tried a shot like this, fast train at night.
