Notes :
(1) Some difference of opinion on the steam loco(s) used for this train. Originally uploaded as: '92220 was photographed heading northbound at Ribblehead on what Bill Jamieson believes to have been this date. Pre-tour advertising suggested the use of steam loco 5305 from Hellifield to Carlisle - was 92220 a substitute due to non availability?' however Bob Bishop comments: 'This train was worked by 4498 'Sir Nigel Gresley' and not 92220 'Evening Star'. I saw it leave Hellifield'. Webmaster comment: Presumably the reference to 92220 was from a different date then?
