Just seen 31452 'Minotaur' and 31454 'The Heart of Wessex' go through here (Farnborough) on the down slow heading a rake of SRPS coaches. Anyone know anything about it? I can't seem to find any mention of it.

I got them at Clapham Junction! It's a Past Time tour, changing to steam at some point, probably Taunton.
Edited (by doublepost prevention system):
They weren't running ECS!

Oh right. I wrongly assumed it was a steam tour and therefore I thought it was just a Salisbury to Weymouth via Yeovil Junction & Yeovil Pen Mill enroute to Salisbury. The steamers will be 45407 and 76079.

That'd be clever consisidering they don't go anywhere near Taunton! The tour goes to Weymouth via some reversals at Yeovil.

My mistake-not Taunton but it's not the first tour to have changed locos ;)

The last report was passing Willesden at 12:20 but no sign of them at Berkswell (near Coventry) between 13:00 and 14:30 so I gave up and came home
