    Looks like they came down from Linlithgow to York with two diesels. Main train has one on the back.

    Looks like it. Just seen the train trundling through Cononley with 47813 tagged onto the rear. Tornado looked magnificent in the (very) hot sunshine. Hope we get some good photos posted on here.

    Messaged VT and they said the runs are taking place today but a subsequent enquiry as to times went unanswered.

    Yes, keeping a close eye on RTT. Pity OTT maps don’t cover the area.
