INTRODUCTION:

1994 saw the start of another major reroute for The Sussex Scot. The train along with others now ran via Manchester Piccadilly giving 2 trains a day Brighton to Manchester and a better service from Manchester to Scotland. The destination was again switched to Glasgow Central. The Summer Saturday services continued to run to and from Eastbourne, although to save an ECS move from Eastbourne the southbound 'Sussex Scot' still ran to Brighton.

1994 also saw the introduction of a half-hourly Clapham Junction to Willesden Junction service on weekdays as a result the call at Clapham Junction on the Intercity trains was withdrawn. I think that the introduction of central door locking and the short platforms at Clapham Junction also played a part in this.

The Dover service was restored again for a 4 week spell on Summer Saturdays, now cut back further to and from Wolverhampton in more or less the same pathway, it continued to be routed via the West Coast mainline.

Once again the Sunday services ran via Redhill and Guildford.
