ScotRail 156s now do a lot more in North East than just the runs along the Tyne Valley Line up to Glasgow, see link to railforums.co.uk below:

I am guessing, although not 100% sure, that the last timetable re-cast has seen the Middlesbrough - Whitby trains run on to and off other services now, rather than seemingly operate as stand-alone services like they often did in the past.

As an example, the ex-Whitby arr Middlesbrough 1330, now appears to form the the 1335 to Hexham.
The arrival in to Middlesbrough at 1355 forms the 1400 to Whitby (appreciate timings may be slightly out, used approximation).

Obviously this helps if you want to get or avoid certain stock.

I've never noticed this before, but happy to stand corrected that it has been like this for a longer period than I thought.
