    That is indeed it, having just looked back at my wording it wasn't brilliant sorry, I meant 'at least' to be it can be 20 years old, not that all the units are.

    Anyway, your go.

    It was when I saw XC have most of the very early 170s I thought it was a possibility.

    Clue 1: This service with run with trains which are more than 20 years old.
    Clue 2: The journey takes more than 2 hours.
    Clue 3: The journey involves at least one reversal.
    Clue 4: The journey ends at a station with loco hauled services.
