  10. Perusing through the web I found this picture by "Lewis Bevan" and some of the comments gives an insight why Gateshead Depot utilised them ocassionally.... Prior to 1978, a visit of a class 31 to Edinburgh was very rare, but became quite a regular occurance from then on. They regularly appeared on the stopping trains from Newcastle or relief trains from the ECML. I think Gateshead favoured using them because they could not be used by Haymarket for any other duty apart from the planned return working with a Gatehead driver as ScR drivers weren't trained on them, thereby guaranteeing fhe safe return of their loco!
