Peter this means that class 92/022 hauled the above train which had a headcode of 6X77, with locomotive 92/0028 dead in tow. Hope this helps.

Good spot, I was unaware that Muntjac could be found in the UK. No HiViz on though, tsk, tsk.

It is funny seeing it twice in 5 days! They must be up to something... Both times I've seen it the train was heading to Euston.

What was this train all about?

One of EWS's First ScotRail-hired class 90s hauling ex-Virgin Mk.3 coaches!

It might be the virgin driver training train, usually tho it comes into Euston about 2am and back out about 3am, and has an EWS 90 MK III rake and MK III DVT.

Nice shots of the paignton and Dartmouth railway, I've been there myself. Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression virgin have that 90 on lone from EWS and are using a backup rake of Mk3's plus DVT to cover for the pendolino written of after Grayrigg.

EDIT

Quote from the wikipedia article on the class 390's

"Grayrigg derailment

Main article: Grayrigg derailment

On 23 February 2007 a faulty set of points caused a Virgin Trains Pendolino to derail near Grayrigg, Cumbria. The train, unit 390 033, named "City Of Glasgow", formed the 1715 departure from London Euston bound for Glasgow’s Central station. The train had 115 people on board, one of whom was killed. The train's excellent crashworthiness was credited with preventing more fatalities.

The train was formally written off on 30 November 2007. This has led to Virgin hiring a Class 90 from EWS as well as a rake of coaching stock to cover for the missing unit."

Although the bit about the coaching stock contradicts the Virgin rolling stock page which says that a number of MK3 coaches and MK3 DVT's where remain with Virgin for backup purposes.

It may be for the driver training for the ECML diverted sleepers, hence that's why its a Scotrail liveried 90.
