????? (2) Edinburgh Waverley - Haymarket - Slateford Jn - Midcalder Jn - Carstairs East Jn - Carstrairs South Jn - (via WCML, Trent Valley & Weedon) - London Euston

Notes :
(1) This train ran to celebrate completion of the East Coast Electrification as well as the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the first InterCity electrics, from Euston to Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. Terry Bartlam believes this was the first journey up the ECML and back via the WCML since the ECML electrification was completed.
(2) Loco confirmation required - Terry Bartlam suggests a class 91 was used however hand-written timings by John Broderick appear to show 90023 was used from Kings Cross to Edinburgh and 86205 back from Edinburgh to Euston?
