More pressing is the return of the Southport to Blackpool hovercraft!
There's a handful of direct services now, which Virgin launched when the Grand Central plans were formalised (after years of saying there was insufficient demand...)....you just have to change at Preston.
As it stands, you would need to change at Manchester Piccadilly if going from Sheffield to Blackpool with the first leg on EMR/TPE and the second leg on Northern.There's a handful of direct services now, which Virgin launched when the Grand Central plans were formalised (after years of saying there was insufficient demand...).
There are/were supposed to be direct trains from Sheffield, which would help the situation for travel from Worksop considerably.
Stunning day today.
Had entry issues due to no phone, but redcoat entry staff were brilliant.
Sunshine, walk ons all afternoon, beer and good company.
Only negative point was dippy farting all the way round on Doras world voyage.
sky force any good today?I second that the park was empty today. Got through Big Blue South entrance and managed Icon 1st Train and also sky force. Did a few others and then left the park about 2pm so didn't manage until close.
Just the headache from Big Dippper followed staight away by Infusion did me in.
Just sitting in the Big Blue now in my room overlooking the Pleasure Beach
sky force any good today?
Any idea what price the fares are?The fantastic new service by train, London to Blackpool direct, started this year at considerable expense... has been scrapped.
Covid/lack of punters given as the excuse.
