(1) 60019 replaced unavailable 70000 'Britannia'. Booked to run from York to Lincoln Central and back with steam haulage, due to severe weather and cancellation of the 2010 Lincoln Christmas Market the itinerary was revised.
(2) Train was re-timed to depart Newcastle 2 hours later than booked due to frozen brakes on the stock delaying departure of the ECS from Holgate Sidings at York. It is also reported that 57601 (given as 'on the rear'...but wasn't?) was removed to go and assist a failed class 91 in the Thirsk area. Understood to have departed 45mins late (whether from Newcastle or York isn't clear....York departure given as around 13.15) and was running 60mins late at Wakefield Kirkgate.
(3) 57601 on rear.
(4) 47851 on rear.
