At a closing speed of 250mph, two InterCity services race across the East Coast Main Line, bound for capital city stations; London King’s Cross and Edinburgh Waverley. An InterCity225 set, with the Class 91 at the rear, prepares to depart York station on a southbound run of the ECML, the next stop will be Peterborough, making for a 112-mile non-stop journey! At a rather overcast Grantham, a High Speed Train accelerates for Doncaster, meanwhile a Regional Railways Class 158 awaits its next stopping-service duty. Heading north, 91021 takes a service bound for Newcastle along the East Coast Main Line, with a Mk4 ‘Driving Van Trailer’ at the rear. The service flies past an RES-livered Class 47, working a freight train for the South. EWS Class 66 action aplenty: 66209 is seen about the cloudy outskirts of Doncaster, working a string of empty HAA wagons bound for York Yard (above), and 66024 works a similar night time duty through a wintry Selby station, where 158756 takes on passengers for a Regional Railways service to York (below). 47290 leads a rake of unloaded container flats along the East Coast Main Line, headed northbound, this soon-to-be-loaded train will use the ECML to transport goods across the country.
