New Northern Rail timetables come into force from Sunday 19 May across the regions routes. Having had a quick skim through, I don't believe there are any changes to times between Newcastle, Heworth and Sunderland; but if I find that there are, then the sites Metro timetable will be updated accordingly.

A member of staff has just handed out a form to those who didn't board/alight at Sunderland so that they can claim for a refund.
I believe I overheard something about passengers having to change trains at some point soon also, though I'm not sure on that one.

EDIT: Make that 1hr 20m... Something happened to the previous one too.

According to the CrossCountry app, the 15:30 from Sunderland is on time and at Billingham currently.
Must have been cleared.

However the GrandCentral from Sunderland due out at 14.06 is 50 mins late - guessing that was stuck earlier on heading North or it may be late for totally unrelated issues...

2N31 arrived Sunderland 1350 and left 1352, 22 late then terminated at Newcastle. The previous service (2N27) terminated at Seaham.

They use the 1450 arrival from London to do the 1406 departure, all down to issues with the 180s...

Have sent Dan a PM with more detail as I was on 2N31 and 2N27.

Basically signal failure 2N27 copped a 1 hr 25 delay, 2N31 just 25 mins.
Both terminated at Newcastle
2N27 and 2N31 actually coupled up at Ryhope to continue to Newcastle
Was hoping to find a MoTrain today but had no luck. Have noticed however that there are Nexus logos on board a Class 142... Does anyone know how long these have been on board for?

They have been on a while.
Not sure how long, but have noticed them in the past (glass divider between doors and seats).

If it was recent, I'd hazard a guess the stylised R logo would have been used.

Due to a broken down train between #Manors and #Heworth services running through these stations may be cancelled or delayed at short notice

Just spotted this on twitter.

Probably worth mentioning that from the December 2013 timetable change (Sunday 8th) Dunston will see hourly calls on the Newcastle-Metrocentre shuttle services.

Due to 10 miles of signalling cable being damaged by an RHTT overnight I understand!

Sorry to reply to an ancient post. The Nexus logo has been there at least 10 years possibly 15. They were put on the Heaton allocated units when Arriva / Northern Spirit refurbed them from the bench seats to the high backed seats they now have. It was about the same time as the old PTE livery was lost replaced by the Northern Spirit livery and Nexus logo on the outside
