Author: 86235

This week Transport for Wales has started training conductors on their former Grand Central Mk4 sets, which are supposed to be introduced from December on Cardiff to Manchester services.

Here are yesterday's 3W41 Cardiff to Hereford lead by DVT 82202 with 67012 on the 3V42 return.

I'll believe it when I see it! A bit like the Trans Pennine loco hauls. Only one in service the other day! Nothing yet on the Cleethorpes. Chris uk.

The TPE loco hauled always were a bit weird from the start, why didn't they just lease more MUs? We've had loco hauls in Wales for years, only interrupted by Covid. Currently three loco hauled services daily (M-F) between Cardiff and Holyhead, an extra six connecting Cardiff and Manchester, starting in December.
