I was at Cheltenham Spa earlier this evening waiting for the 2010 to Leeds.

A few minutes before it was due a northbound loco hauled train went though which seemed to consist of two sets of FGW HSTs with the power cars replaced with normal loco hauled coaches

Real time trains suggests it was en route from Laira to Kilmarnock - I'm curious to know why and what for rather than just guessing.

Previously discussed. A couple of links:-

There has also a lengthy thread about transportation by road but I can't turn it up at the moment.
