The Anonymous Widower

Was The Queen’s Locomotive Acting As A Thunderbird?

I took these pictures of 67006 Royal Sovereign at Kings Cross when I arrived in Platform 0 from Peterborough today at 15:45.

Note.

  1. Normally, 67006 is assigned to the Royal Train.
  2. The locomotive is in Platform 1.
  3. The Class 67 Locomotive was definitely coupled to the InterCity 225.
  4. It does appear that the next movement out of Platform 1 was a diesel-hauled empty coaching stock movement to Neville Hill Depot in Leeds at 19:40.
  5. It looks like the train arrived in Kings Cross at 12:55 from Skipton, nearly three hours late.

It does look as though the train was towed to London by the Queen’s Locomotive and then pushed all the way back to Leeds.
