(1) Train noted heading northbound at Blea Moor hauled by 46229 with a 478xx on the rear for ETH purposes. Originally advertised as reversing at Carlisle with the change of traction from steam to diesel there also and with return routing via WCML but unclear if this was revised post-advertising or on the day due to operating circumstances?
