Are you sure of the letters for 2d?
Question Author
I believe that the other answers are OK.

1a) People seen in Ascot-Sunningdale service. SCOTS
11a) Fictious livery of trains in The Railway Children- very sweet. CARAMEL
13a) Delivered to you by faulty tennis player, but not in First Class. SECOND SERVICE

If these are correct then the 2d) will be C?S?A?E? (Assume USURP is correct).


Cannot find a word that fits?
Thank you, teddy.

Anyone?
Can't find anything - yet
It's a stumper.
2d Cartages? (just a guess)

One result of the franchise bidding process is that moving entire fleets of trains between lines is most easily done when a franchise expires. Often the introduction of new trains for one particular line can lead to a "cascade", as the older fleet moves to another line to replace an even older fleet, and so on. In the days of British Rail, railway managers were free to move rolling stock around to meet demand.

I reckon that the answer is CASCADES.

Thank you to everyone for your time. You learn something every day!
I came across Cascades but thought it was a trade name - well found and ta.x
