Report Date Title Report Source
30/06/1947 General The 2.5 p.m. Darlington to Leeds train (return from Leeds at 6.45 p.m.) continues as a running-in train for locos. ex-North Road Works. Since the appearance of 'V2' No. 836 (HAY) on 1/4, the consecutive appearance of new 'Bl' on this turn has been broken; No. 836 having worked intermittently on the train up to 2/6-an unusually long running-in period for Scottish Area 'V2,' which usually work this train only once or twice. The latest 'Bl' noted are Nos. 1026 on 29/4, 1022 on 16/5, and 1028 on 28/5. Nos. 1024/7 have not yet appeared on this turn. Two new conversions are No. 1468 to 'B16/3' and No. 1607 to 'B2,' and which first worked this train on 23/5 and 27/5 respectively. SLS/194708
