On 23 November I travelled on the 12 car 450 1809 Waterloo to Fareham. Last time I travelled on this train 4 cars detached at Eastleigh. This time all 12 cars continued to Fareham. Do all 12 cars on this train continue to Portsmouth Harbour every weekday now?
Looking at Real Time Trains, the rear portion isstill detached at Eastleigh in the basic working timetable. I suspect it ran as a complete 12 car to Portsmouth Hbr as a short notice stock balance ready for the strike service on the following day.
This was indeed a one off and this service will continue to detach 4 coaches at Eastleigh.
