86259 Preston - (reverse of outward route) - London Euston

Notes :
(1) 80217 was only in the consist when 35018 was on the train.
(2) It is reported that the E.C.S. from Southall to Euston was heavily delayed at Acton. Due to this delay 86259 worked throughout from Euston to Carlisle, rather than changing locos to steam at Carnforth.
