    Oh dear, a quick glance at RTT would indicate "Full beans" from the rear ! I wonder what the plan is for the return.

    Anybody remember any other steam tours with a powered electric on the back?
    Would that make it an electric box?;)

    @neildimmer - is there any indication which route back you’re taking? S&C as planned or via Shap?
    Thanks, Simon

    73107 went out on the back of a few Steam Dreams trips in 2006, slightly different from an 86 admittedly.

    Electric has gone LE to Preston. I can't see any other LE paths for a diesel from Carnforth.

    Very common in Europe. I've done steam tours with an electric loco on the back in Italy and Switzerland, and I've seen photos of German tours too.

    As time goes on WCML may become more attractive to operator and the railway.

    Carnforth to Carlisle in about 55 minutes would have been fun...
