(1) Confirmation required; 47786 with 47798 on rear.
(2) 47786 on rear.
(3) Initially uploaded with the following comment as supplied by Nick Harvey: 'It seems likely this train may have run on 18th April instead (replacing the similar advertised itinerary, but from Holyhead and stations to Chester). Detailed routing shown above is that actually taken on 18th April'. Subsequently however Terry Eyres has come forward with confirmation the train did run as he photographed it near Warrington on the return leg, hauled by 47798 with 47786 on the rear. Routing requires confirmation as may not apply to this date.
