    A friend of mine said he was stopped at Harlescott crossing yesterday and assuming it would be a DMU, didn't pay much attention, but upon glancing up saw it was a rake of old Virgin liveried stock...possibly Mk 2's...he didn't see what was hauling it - does anyone know the story?

    It was probably the Riviera Trains charter rake on its way back to Crewe after being used on a Cheshire Cat Tours Cardiff-Durham trip on Saturday.

    Class 67 worked the tour, presumably it did the ECS move as well.
