Yeah, hence why I deleted my post. But, I still think it has been done before though.

I think you are correct at 26 - but not too sure about Chelmsford as a destination - but you can add Ely I believe. (15.58 departure in normal times).

Leeds still has Middlesbrough terminators making it 46. If you allow Summer Saturdays Newquay and Paignton that's 48.

Chelmsford has some peak only services to and from London that usually go into / start from the Down Goods Loop just north of the station.

1E80 1900 XC from Glasgow Central to York. Worcestershire Parkway I mind seeing a picture on Twitter of it on the boards not long ago, so assuming that counts even if it isn't permanent?
