(1) Route confirmation required, seen on 03/08 at Laurieston (near Falkirk) heading south hauled by 246 leading 419, said to be heading via Edinburgh and bound for Darlington (to take part in the Rail 150 celebrations later in the month). These were actually stock moves, confirmation is required if fare paying passengers were carried in either direction.
