530Q- 0930- Doncaster Works Wabtec- Haymarket Depot10th August 2020
With the transformation of Scotland’s railway in full swing the 19th refurbished HST set was ready to make its way north back to Scotland from Doncaster Works Wabtec. With only 7 sets now needing refurbished, what started out as a rocky start for the refurbished Inter7City sets they have became more reliable, and in the next few months once the remaining 7 sets are completed the next part of the program will commence, when 4 coaches will become 5, on 17 of the sets providing a further increase to capacity for the 7 cities of Scotland.
Your task for today is to take the newest refurbished set from Newcastle across the border to Edinburgh, with the train having come up from Doncaster Works Wabtec you will pick it up on the King Edward Bridge just outside Newcastle, before running non-stop up the East Coast Mainline to the Scottish capital, upon arrival into Edinburgh another driver will relieve you where they will take the new set the short distance to Haymarket Depot where it will be put through its paces before entering passenger service. Traffic on the service is light with a clear run infront of you, southbound traffic is accurate as of 06/08/20 when the journey took place, unit numbers are also accurate on all LNER and Scotrail trains thanks to Realtime Train’s ‘Know Your Train’ feature.
