57601 (1) York - (via ECML) - Stevenage

Notes :
(1) 47804 on rear.
(2) Mike Richmond (joined/left the train at Huntingdon) comments: It ran pretty much to time northbound, catching up the few minutes it was behind with the stop in Hemsworth loop. Departure from Carlisle was delayed by a late running Pendolino to London, and then more time was lost at Low Fell and in the loop at Tursdale. Departure from York was about 1 hour down, but 57601 made up some time to be about 40mins late on return to Huntingdon.
