(1) Was originally booked for Deltic haulage. Train seen at Edinburgh with D172 and passing southbound through Carlisle (at 16.36 against booked time of 16.33). Remainder of the above loco & route information was taken from a tour advert in the railway press and thus requires confirming. When seen passing through Carlisle D172 had on a "Thames-Clyde Express" headboard and was displaying headcode 1M86.
