After an absence of over thirteen years a timetabled daytime passenger train was hauled by a Class 90 yesterday on the East Coast Mainline. Indications are that this is not going to be a one off.
It is hoped to keep tabs on exactly which trains use Class 90s and of course which locomotives are used. For now details are being held as a feature on the Sheffield Branch webpage https://www.rcts.org.uk/branches/sheffi ... eld/ECML90
Could I encourage anyone who observes a Class 90 in passenger use on the ECML to report this. Also if anyone is lucky enough to posses equipment related to the new fangled development of photography and is able to catch an image of such an event on a glass plate please let us have a copy.
Will add a summary of the 1991-2003 period in the next few days.
