Did anyone see this passing through Gateshead yesterday? I don't know where it was headed but I saw it around 2:10pm coming from Park Lane and heading towards the King Edward bridge junction.

Sounds like the Pathfinder Tyne Tees Rambler
Could be, Rivera Trains have side boards on the first class coaches, usually Royal Scot or something, but what was the 'green engine' about, I was un-aware of a Freightliner 66 on this, I thought it was DBS sheds?

No green loco on the tour it was 66238 (an EWS liveried virgin just to confuse people!) and 66030. It did have some Torbay Express coaches in the rake, these being obviously not needed for their Bristol-Kingswear work at this time of year.
