43103 was leading 43067
as it pulled in to platform 6 with the morning London-Holyhead.
Because there is currently no lead onto the Chester line from
platform 6 it was reasonable to assume there was something wrong.
Indeed the train was terminated at Crewe and passengers were
directed over to platform 11 to await further information. Soon
after the 10.21 Birmingham-Holyhead pulled in to platform 11
in the form of a 175 unit instead of the normal class47 + 4 whereupon
the passengers tried to board it. Virgin staff had to stop the
boarding and advise that another train would follow the 175 which
quickly left. The 09.26 Holyhead-London pulled into platform
11 with 43093 leading 43092 where the service was terminated.
Passengers for London were told to cross to platform 5 where
the next train would arrive in 40 minutes while Holyhead passengers
were told to board 43093+43092 which subsequently left for Holyhead
again. Meanwhile, 43103+43067 left for Manchester. Confused?.....
