    It seems the Glasgow tour has morphed into a Glasgow-Crewe via Newcastle and dropped the planned use of 87002 (or lesser electric).
    2x47 for 2x66 for TBC (20s?)

    Oh well, won't be bothering with that then :| hope the extra shed can make up for others!

    Correct, The stock at Eastleigh is unavailable that weekend so Instead it is coming from Riviera at Crewe AFAIK.

    Also there is still the opportunity for an 86/87 to work the Anglian one

    Looks like the Anglia tour will feature some (classic) AC traction after all:
