I'm hearing on the jungle drums (well, Facebook) that Laira Traction Maintenance Depot in Plymouth has won the contract to maintain CrossCountry's fleet of HSTs. Transferring said maintenance from Edinburgh Craigentinny and Leeds Neville Hill.

Can anyone confirm?

Itís come up in other places within the last couple of months.  Itíll mean significant changes to the present diagramming that is supposedly designed around southbound flows towards New St in the morning, and northbound in the evenings...

However I donít suppose the trains actually have to get back to Laira every night do they?

Newcastle's Heaton depot can also provide HST work, as thats where Grand Central's used to go.
