Virgin Trains East Coast
91111 For the Fallen passes Colton Junction with a northbound express. This excellent livery has been applied in late 2014, that is in the time when East Coast was still operating the franchise. Luckily, its successor retained it, despite having all other ‘91s’ repainted.
43208 ‘Lincolnshire Echo’ passes Hambleton South Junction with the 1E07 0830 Edinburgh to London Kings Cross. The road bridges along the North Yorkshire section of ECML provide decent photo opportunities. This one was taken from Field Lane bridge with A63 embankment and bridge visible in the background.
A Virgin Trains Azuma, or 800101, returns to Doncaster after taking part in the ‘Four Trains Four Generations’ event on the ECML. During the event, class 800 travelled alongside the Flying Scotsman, Intercity 225 and an HST on a short section of ECML north of York.
