    Can anyone tell me which two engines were sat in steam in the sidings beyond York RM this morning with a single West Coast liveried carriage in tow? Caught me off guard and I wasn’t able to catch the names or numbers.

    I believe it to be this working:

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    EDIT: I believe one of the locos to have been 35018 - British India Line but not sure of the other.

    The other one should have been 35018.

    Annoyingly I noticed this working on RTT but just assumed it was a 47 or 57 on an ecs so I didn't turn out. Oh well...

    As I passed it they were sitting in the sidings but very much in steam. I think 35018 was sandwiched between 60009 and the carriage. Not exactly barreling down the ECML at full tilt but it brightened up my commute nonetheless.
