This facsimile publication is a reproduction of the North Eastern Region’s East Coast Main Line passenger workings to and from Edinburgh, York, Leeds, Doncaster Grantham, Peterborough, together with the inter-regional and express workings within the region. Eastern and Scottish Region duties taking their engines across into North Eastern Region territory are also listed. Local workings from the sheds covered here are covered by separate publications. The workings are arranged on a shed-by-shed basis with an indication of the locomotive class (including newly introduced Deltics, English Electric class 40s and BR/Sulzer class 45s). Many of the new diesels have intensive 7 days a week rosters with time for fuelling and weekly maintenance at their ‘home depot. In this transition period many Pacific classes still feature as well as classes V2 2-6-2, B1 4-6-0 and K2 2-6-0.
Also contained are the engines provided as main line (steam) pilots in case of emergency at Tweedmouth, Gateshead, Darlington and York. Crew rosters are separately listed and cross-referred to the locomotive workings so the men knew which turns applied to them
