There is a pretty strong chance that the set will be used as planned - always a risk of a fail and a swap to a Meridian, but generally that is unusual. Obv if you have a flexible ticket (not Advance) you can just wait for next train in the expectation that that's an HST. It's worth the wait after all!This all looks good, provided conditions allow, the trains that I was thinking of using are all 125s, northbound 1334, 1434, 1534 and southbound 1345, 1445, 1545
No date has been said. At the moment the dispensation on all sets run until the 31st December so they can't run into 2021 yet. It is likely that the ex LNER sets will continue into 2021 and the May timetable change.When are the HSTs due to finish running out of St Pancras? Will they still be running in 2021...
Cheers. I didn't realise how much I'd miss them on the GWR out of Paddington - until they'd gone. It'd be nice to get some out of London before they go altogetherNo date has been said.

The 1st phase of reduced use is likely to co-incide with when the ex Hull Trains 180s come into service on the Midland Main Line (under test at the moment) - which are intended to replace the diagrams operated by the shorter, buffered HST sets (ex Grand Central HSTs, which have a former 1st class coach for standard class passengers as Coach D) if I understand the plan correctly. If this goes as planned that will take out a modest number of HST runs each day, and reduce the number of HSTs EMR need to use.Cheers.

Yes, it was really nice to be able to go on HST 125s both ways on a recent trip to Nottingham earlier this month.Cheers. I didn't realise how much I'd miss them on the GWR out of Paddington - until they'd gone. It'd be nice to get some out of London before they go altogether
There's no specific diagrams for them. They can appear on any of the Neville Hill 2+8 diagrams.anyone have the VP185 power car diagrams, need to see the last 3 before the VP 185s are gone forever on passenger services on the MML
im farely new to the hobby and i just want to go on all the VPs with emr, all i need now is Neville Hill and then i have travelled on them all from STP to NOTThere's no specific diagrams for them. They can appear on any of the Neville Hill 2+8 diagrams.
Not quite sure why there's the desperation now, though. Those three have been dedicated Midland power cars for the last 30 years!
Anything to or from Leeds will be a HST. These being the 1444, 1842 and 2041 departures on the 13th. Not sure on the other services yet as the number of HSTs reduce from the timetable change.Looking to find the HST departures from St. Pancras on Sunday 13th December. Thanks.

Derby is likely. Someone posted on the ex LNER thread that there will be a Saturday Derby diagram which would suggest that there will be at least one in the week as well. Cricklewood will be highly unlikely except for during the day which most diagrams look like they will do.Will any be based at Derby or Cricklewood from December?
Yes the timetable PDF's/Book are wrong but I wonder if these are picked up by the timing loads as they are still pathed as HST's in real time trains.So basically am I to understand that the 20th December online EMR timetables are incorrect in that on first glance, the same services as now, are denoted as HST eg. xx34 Nottingham's, 1005, 1904, 2001, 2031, 2200 etc etc out of St Pancras?
It does not look like the timetable bod has been told HST's are being reduced.
Yes it goes back to Etches Park. Platform numbers suggests that the 1705 from London splits to form the 1912 and 1945 to London.Thanks for revised diagrams so the 1734 ends at Nottingham? The last couple of weeks it has done the 1945 to St Pancras and 2200 return.
because the dft thought it was a good idea as they are slightly more PRM compliant than the ex EMT stock. The ex LNER stock were not in a good state hence it has taken a long time to get them in service.If the above diagrams are correct and the HST fleet is to be used so infrequently going forwards what was the point in getting the ex LNER fleet? It seems that they are only just starting to come through in meaningful numbers when they're about to spend most of the day sat in sidings.

By the looks of things these are the diagrams from the 13th. Thanks to @louis97 for filling in the gaps on the ex LNER HST thread last week:
