Wonder if anyone can help.

I work in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, next to Salts Mill. I see the Settle Carlisle line all day and today coming in towards leeds/Shipley from Skipton there was a rake of vintage coaches halled by two locos, anyone know what it was?

I see loads of freight and normal commuter trains but this was neither.

It was red, couldn’t really see what locos were hauling.

It will probably have been an WCRC ECS working from Carnforth for a charter tomorrow. There was a Carnforth - Barnetby working ealier today routed that way. These aren't that uncommon on Fridays (heading to the tour's origin)and Sundays (heading back to Carnforth).

yes - the diesel will take the ECS to the tour location, sit on the back ond provide ETH then bring the stock back to Carnforth
