Cumbrian Mountain Express

Loco(s) Used at least 40122 (running as D200)

Route : 1Z41 throughout

Locos Route
????? London Kings Cross - Leeds
40122 Leeds - Carlisle
????? Carlisle - London Kings Cross

Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required. Pre tour advertising gave this tour as reversing at Howe & Co Siding on the S&C and having steam haulage using 46229 'Duchess of Hamilton' between Howe & Co Siding and York. It is suspected that D200 substituted for steam traction due to a high fire risk.
