(1) Route confirmation required. Dave Green comments: We arrived very late back at Leyland, just after midnight, as our train had to assist a failed leading service up the Lickey!! I also remember watching all the firework displays as we travelled north as it was a Saturday and Bonfire night was in full swing.
