The 1.42 is stuck at new street with a fault. If they don't get it running again will they leave a train missing for the rest of service or send a replacement from tyseley? Coming back on the 7pm from cannock later for night out....i hope it's not this train scheduled to run it...

LM have a replacement bus service between Liverpool South Parkway and Crewe, according to their Twitter feed. I'm guessing that wasn't there last night?

Probably left empty as no one was told about it

Aman's YD17WXU was in use at lunchtime - quite why LM can't go to Runcorn escapes me - when I left fifteen minutes later there was quite a number waiting for the next to turn up.

Rammed 1742 service delayed due to fault...same fault that delayed it on sat. If this is cancelled it will be horrific at 6.12! I would bet anyrhing that its the same unit from sat

It got cancelled and then the 6.12 was short with TWO carriages. Absolute carnage people shouting and angry on pkatform with dozens left behind. Pathetic

Are the 150s staying for the new franchise after all?

According to correspondence on the ORR website the Coventry-Leamington service is now going to be worked by a cl.172.

Maybe thatll free up a 153 to attach to the horrendously overcrowded first train from rugeley ( the one the MP had the publicity shot on) and the 4.42 from new st...2 carriages are woefully inadequate and with extra amazon workers on will be even more so

Pity they couldnt send 3 170s there instead and utilise the sprinters on the chase line till electrification. Far better suited to commuter services than 170s

It won't because there wasn't a spare 153 in the first place. The aim is for the 16:42 to be 3 cars from May 18 though I believe

Im sure tyseley could have thrown out a 3 car in BR days...with way more seating than todays efforts...in fact they often did
