This strikes me very much as not wishing to accept you're wrong! It doesn't hurt to be wrong

Also, seen a rumour online that the 68s may be here till December to cover the Leaf Fall season known as Autumn.

More a question of me being not too bothered about the 68 diagram vanishing since they'll be around for a lot of years yet and will shortly be available in quantity on the Trans-Pennine route...

Having said that, I do need at least three of the 37/4s that get rotated on to the Norwich diagram, so I had better not hang around either...

What's the current likelihood of getting a 37 on any given weekday/weekend at the moment?

You have 2x 37s working between Carlisle along the Cumbrian Coast, which I believe work Mondays to Saturdays

The Anglia 37s at the moment are Monday to Friday, with the set coming out to play during summer saturdays

Also, if Norwich are at home the 37s tend to come out to play in the afternoon between Norwich and Great Yarmouth.

Although the Freightmaster site may not seem to be the obvious choice all loco hauled passenger trains are also listed in the many freight timetables published, and someone on the forum keeps a permenant updated list as well. You do however have to pay to join the site.

An easy way to get a decent run behind both GA loco hauled sets is:

14:55 Norwich to Lowestoft (37)
15:48 Lowestoft to Brundall (37)
You can risk a tight connection at Brundall Gardens by a following DMU, can't quite remember if Brundall has a pub on its doorstep
16:50 Brundall to Great Yarmouth (68)
17:17 Great Yarmouth to Norwich (68)

Then 18:00 Norwich - Liverpool Street behind a 90

I believe GA do cheap advance tickets to Norwich, other than that splitting at Manningtree can save some money depending where you are coming from

Sadly, my loco-hauled extravaganza today was scuppered by a 37 breaking down not far out of Carlisle. I'll obviously need to come back again, but I'd rather get the run from Preston without taking another day off if at all possible. So, which 37 diagrams (if any) run on bank holiday Mondays (specifically the late May one)?

Ermmm not entirely sure there. From RTT it appears that it's a normal service on 29 May BH monday...

Wouldn't rely on that though

If you get a ticket to Ipswich, then you can use an Anglia Plus Day Ranger (£18.20) and then you can go pretty much wherever you like in East Anglia (not the Cross Country trains from Norwich to Ely).

A single from Lowestoft to Great Yarmouth is £14 on its own.
