    57309 should have been working with 57308 all weekend on this turn, however despite having 'bike wheels' painted on its buffers as per 57308 it was required for a Virgin Trains move on Friday night (4th) and standby loco, freshly overhauled 47810, stepped in and remained in place until replaced by the standby to the standby; a pair of 20s!

    * = Suffered a traction motor flashover near Burnley, assisted by 57308 to Blackburn where 47810 was removed from the train.

    ** = The standby locos were 20308 and 20309 which ran light behind 1Z18 to Bradford to be attached. Because of passenger demand at Sheffield and the very late arrival in to Bradford at 1610 of 1Z18 1425 Blackburn to Bradford after the removal of 47810 at the former 1Z19 1540 Bradford to Blackburn was cancelled and the 20s formed a 1Z20 1640 Bradford-Sheffield. However this then went to stable at Healey Mills for some time with passengers aboard before it was decided to send it back to Hebden Bridge to pick up 1Z21 1857 Bradford-Blackburn. An additional stop was made at Brighouse to give people who actually wanted to go to Sheffield the chance to get there.

    05/07/14, 47841 arrives at Malton with the 1650 Scarborough-Liverpool. Unlike the Northern workings, TPE used their train in the path of a normal class 185 worked train, though removing a few stops, Liverpool South Parkway, Birchwood, Stalybridge (presumably for time keeping and passenger loadings). 47853 was on the rear.


    05/07/14, two TPE trains at Liverpool, the 47 having completed the 1650 Scarborough-Liverpool.


    06/07/14, 67027 at the start of the day with a 333 at Leeds.


    06/07/14, on hire to Northern Rail sticker in the window.


    06/07/14, 67006 at the start of the day before working the 0829 to Hebden Bridge as far as Bradford Interchange when it would reverse. This very train was the first loco hauled passenger train to Bradford Interchange since..... one for you to find out! Certainly the first 67 in normal service to there, though the Northern Belle and the management train have previously visited there with the class.


    06/07/14 at Bradford Interchange buffer stops 67006 and 57308. The 57 would later be on the rear of the 1021 to Blackburn, and the 67 was halfway through the 0829 Leeds to Hebden Bridge. Yellow 158849 can be seen in the background of photo 8, as can 57308's matching headboard and cycle wheel buffers.
