    Yesterday evening this service ran from Leicester Depot (having come down form Barrow Hill/Derby RTC) to Eastleigh for onward working to Swanage:

    It was late off Leicester and then seems to have ground to a halt at Wigston.

    The service was a GBRF 66 with covered nameplates ( ;) ) a green 37, 50035 "Ark Royal" (Looking fantastic in blue), 45060 "Sherwood Forester" & 56006 looking very nice in blue

    On a train...somewhere!
    0O56 departed Leicster late due to 'Train Prep' - this likely translates as issues attaching the additional loco and preparing for departure.

    Main delay (Leicester - South Wigston) was due to an defect on XC 1P24, with 0O56 stood on block awaiting movement.

    To add to the fun 0Y45 (yesterday's forward portion from Eastleigh) was a late start due to an operating incident!

    Cheers! We on 1B66 passed inside the stock movement at Wigston and I assumed IT had failed.

    Sounds like your missing locos are 66741 "Swanage Railway" and 37057. Photo of the nameplate found by using a Flickr search (so not my photo) https://www.flickr.com/photos/60628514@N02/16763029633/in/photolist-rxhUGi-suN8wk-rx87sx-saALUX
