I can't help other than to tell you they are still being used.
The 1402 from York to King's Cross on the 11th October used them.
I wasn't on it but an elderly couple were struggling to find the 1402 as it didn't have a platform assigned on the screen so I explained it would be platform 6 but it likely wasn't ready for boarding yet and pointed at it (and then realised it was the EMT set).

Whether this is a regular working for it or not I have no idea.

Hi everyone - bring up this old(-ish) threat again. Can anyone confirm if any EMT power cars are still working for VTEC, and if so - which sets are they operating under? Many thanks!

EMT power cars continue to be used on set NL65: the diagram for that set has been posted on here previously. Other EMT power cars are hired by VTEC when needed: no fixed diagram as they can appear on any VTEC HST, but they will obviously come on/off hire at Neville Hill.

The Mk3 fleet internal refurbishment is now complete, Mk4 fleet is almost there - still some sets with the old interior (not sure of exact numbers remaining).

Old sets now few and far between... managed to get one last Friday for the first time in months.

I doubt it is a normal working for them as I thought it went Hull - London, London - Leeds, Leeds - London and then London - Hull

Just in time to go out of service! :D

EDIT: Yes, I know they will still around for a while, and report on RAIL said VTEC passed the million passenger mark for 2016 for the first time on the ECML, so they must be doing something right.

Saw this at Kings Cross on Saturday 10 June 2017.
Looks like it formed (1H10) 1710 London Kings Cross to Hull
which terminated at Doncaster due to problems with traction equipment.

That set didn't fail. It was (IIRC) 43299 on 1D21 1603 KX-Leeds that failed with starter motor issues and went to Neville Hill on arrival. To resource the back working, the Hull service was PINEd Doncaster to start 1845 LDS-KGX from there.

Noticed TV new screens in VTEC Mark 4 for the first time today. Rolling display of timetable info, promo videos, LU updates etc. Are these going to be universally fitted to all VTEC trains?

I believe they are rolling these out, however the concept is far from new. See http://www.railforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=117326 - Hull Trains I believe were the first operator with these, a good two years ago!
