xx/11/03: I have the above listed as possibly November 2003, though 816 appears to have stayed in Scotland the whole time - until I find out the actual date though it's staying on this page - 47816 (closest) and 47830 at Preston. 830 is hauling the pair away from a signal check, they were then driven the opposite way back onto a set of stock for a drag south of Preston hence the marker lights on 816.
