ECML Dragged Trains - Winter 2015

All trains shown were dragged between Peterborough and Doncaster unless otherwise shown. They were also diverted to run via Spalding, Sleaford avoiding line*, Lincoln and Gainsborough Lea Road in both directions. Northbound (Down) trains were routed via Decoy South Junction approaching Doncaster. Southbound (Up) trains were routed via Black Carr Junction leaving Doncaster.

*It is believed that this was the first passenger use of the Sleaford avoiding line in the down direction since it was returned to use.

Note 1 Not planned to be dragged. Dragged from Kings Cross to Leeds
Note 2 1E07 actually terminated at Doncaster due to the inability of the Mark IV set to accept power from either 67015 or 67022. As a consequence the following 1E08 09:00 Edinburgh - Doncaster was thus sent forward from Doncaster as 1E07 being dragged succesfully by 67022.
