INTRODUCTION:

Little change in 1999. The Summer Saturday service to and from Ramsgate once again operated for the full summer timetable, this year the northbound service was accelerated by approx 30 minutes within Kent and now ran to Glasgow Central instead of Edinburgh. D9000 again was loco in charge between Birmingham and Ramsgate and v/v.

The Sussex Scot ran via the Seattle and Carlisle line on certain Saturdays. Last years innovation of starting the Manchester to Brighton train from Preston continued.


TIMETABLE and ROUTE:

The Sussex Scot ran via the Seattle and Carlisle line on certain Saturdays. Last years innovation of starting the Manchester to Brighton train from Preston continued.
