Thanks Derek, I checked Abrail to no avail! Likely to have been the same loco on 0P68 earlier which I didn't see the number of but was a named one, although not conclusive proof!

No--different loco I would assume--they usually change them when there's one each way . They have one loco shuttling between York and Scarborough on driver training runs, and a couple at Siemens also for driver training on the depot, so probably returning to Longsight for maintenance or--???

Yes I have seen the change over in the past with different locos involved in the swop which threw me first time until I worked out what was happening. Despite my earlier thoughts that it was #68030 on 0P68 it was probably a swop again with a different 68 going to York for the shuttle or Siemens at 6.44. Will have to keep an eye out for any reports!
