did it happen since class 373 exist?
did GNER operate them to another destination except of Leeds?
does anybody have photos which can confirm it (Glasgow? Edinburgh? Newcastle? York? somthing?)
thanks!

Prior to Leeds they used to run to York. I have some photos somewhere, I'll see if I can find one.

I did once see a Eurostar set at Newcastle Central. Presumably on a test run or somesuch. Had no camera with me so no picture I am afraid.

They operated to York last year for Royal Ascot too.

Yup...they did! Click the link to see evidence of that!

The people on the platform (sat down) were more interested in the diesel behind (Royal Army Ordnance Corps IIRC...I think it was the standby for Scarborough excursions?) and the other person wandering down the platform is one of my friends! The set was 3305/6.

Cheers

They definitely went to York while Leeds was being refurbished. They made it Newcastle on test but were found to be too long for corners and there was a risk of them sticking out too far and hitting trains on the other line.
