    Decent bets are 06:30 Kings Cross - Leeds and the Newark shorts on Saturday. Could also turn up on other Leeds trains.

    Sunday, 16:35 Kings Cross - Leeds and 12:22 Kings Cross - Newcastle are decent bets. Sometimes an earlier Leeds turn can drop, seemingly less common is the 17:35.

    A note: The only 90s usable on the ECML are those fitted with DRA.
    The DB Cargo examples are:
    90018
    90019
    90020
    90029
    90034
    90036
    90039.
    AIUI, there are no plans to fit any further 90s with DRA equipment for ECML services.

    Travelling home from York yesterday and I saw 90019 departing on a northbound service around 14:35. Looking at RTT is may well have been working 1N16 12:22 Kings Cross to Newcastle

    By DRA are you referring to the Driver's Reminder Appliance? I hadn't realised it wasn't mandatory for freight locos.

    Given that it's intended to prevent 'ding ding and away' scenarios, which can only occur on bell/buzzer-fitted passenger services with the driver looking backwards at the platform while moving off, there would be no point on fitting it to freight trains.
