It’s a pleasant Saturday evening, and you will be taking on the 20:12 Avanti West Coast service all the way from London Euston to Liverpool Lime Street, the last Liverpool service of the day. It is the peak of the summer holidays and is a busy time – so ensure that we remain on schedule. On that note, the fast lines between Euston and Hanslope Junction are shut this evening to allow for overnight engineering works to take place, adding about 10-15 minutes to the usual journey time down to Rugby. Once we get to Liverpool, you will hang around for another 10 minutes or so before taking the empty train down to Edge Hill Depot for overnight stabling under headcode 5F37.
We will be calling at:
Rugby (21:19), Stafford (21:50), Crewe (22:09), Runcorn (22:28), and Liverpool Lime Street (22:45).

Things to know:
>SPAD-tabbing – There are only 3 occasions in the entire run (all in Part 1) where you will need to tab red signals. These are at North Wembley, Wolverton, and Hanslope Junction. I have placed waypoints before these signals to remind you of this.
>Due to the current absence of the Class 331 in TSC, this train is instead represented by Clowes’ Class 322 Northern (UB) reskin instead.
