    Default 2020 Spring Crawl to 'The North' (dates)

    So, Preston it is, so here are some dates based on a notional April (or thereabouts) trip.

    There are some football fixtures that may affect some of the dates with Wigan being at home to Hull on Saturday 18th April.
    Other more relevant fixtures are Preston home to Birmingham on Saturday 25th April, Wigan at home to QPR on Good Friday and Fulham on Saturday 2nd May.

    Isn't Good Friday a Sunday service not to mention engineering works over Easter.
    I can;t find Easter engineering plans but Euston has been closed for Easter in previous years.

    I can't see Wigan v Hull causing any problems as I assume the Hull fans will travel to Manchester then direct to Hull.
    Fridays are generally outscoring Saturdays except for Good Friday that has yet to score.

    I did think that looked the least problematic of them but wasn't sure what the best route was from Hull. I wouldn't mind betting that it takes a lot longer to get there from Hull than Euston! So is HS2 a priority? Of course not!

    Hull - Wigan (WG) 2:45 change at Piccadilly
    Euston - Wigan (NW) between 1:55 and 2:54 direct

    but as it looks like Friday 17th that would be an ecumenical matter. HS2?? don't be daft Crossrail over-runs and anything else in the South East take priority.

    Good Town(s) Budapest. If you have ever crossed the Thames by the bridge in Marlow Bucks, then the bridge across the Danube will look mightily familiar.......

    I used to stay in Marlow when on courses based in High Wycombe, so, yes, I've seen it many times, although all 15+ years ago, so memories of the bridge are vague to say the least.
