All in the dark though so that will test high ISO performance.After the final leg of the tour (the Leeds to Kings X portion), there looks to be a very long ECS trip, from Kings X to Craigentinny Depot, so this might be the perfect opportunity for photos:

Excellent. You only have to look at the vertical lines on IC liveried 43185 where the 'joins' are to see how rubbish vinyls can be. Wonder if 43206 will have a 'W' or 'E' prefix. Or perhaps, given that it is being done at Craigentinny, it will be 'SC'.You try finding some of the old cab doors to re-fit....
43206 also now has its correct 253003 set number on the coupler hatch.
Have to say Heritage Painting have done a great job on the power cars - much better than the sticky-back plastic job on 43002.
