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.

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.
