(1) Route confirmation required. Jeff Hawken comments: Outward route was (I think) via ECML and North London Line, NOT MML. On the return, the crew were unable to start the boiler on 47255. Surprisingly we didn’t return via the ECML but rather took the MML instead. At Leicester 45044 was waiting with boiler blowing off, ready to warm us through again, and worked through to York.
(3) Webmasters note: originally uploaded as having been worked by 45044 York - (via MML) - Dover - Leicester and 47255 from Leicester to York but revised to above per Jeff Hawken information.
