Skegness HST

To provide additional capacity for customers travelling to Skegness this summer, East Midland Trains are to utilise one of their HST sets on Saturdays (July 18th - September 5th), providing two return trips from Nottingham to Skegness. A trial run which was to have taken place on 17th May was postponed and instead took place on 23 May. The same HST worked additional relief trains from Nottingham to Skegness today - and we were there to record its arrival at Skegness. Full details will be included in the May/June LEYTR. (PW)
