They do normally but there have been times that I've been through Doncaster and not seen one stabled there.

8 is easy, its one of the main 4 north-south platforms, always people taking photos.

Even if that 180 isn't it won't be too long till one calls in service, or till a Grand Central one goes through a centre line at full speed!

What's up with the 180?

No idea but I think its the same one that was parked up south of the station earlier in the week.

Its since been joined by 91122, which I suspect is the EC failure earlier today.

Sometimes the thunderbird can be obscured by freight trains in the sidings, and also the OHL posts.
