73966 Heads North of the Border

Three miles short of the Scottish border, 73966 - the first Class 73 conversion for The Caledonian Sleeper Highlands haulage - accompanied by 66732, crosses the Royal Border Bridge at about 18:10 on 6th October 2015. It seems that 66732 was to be the "taxi" to get the traincrew (or some of them) back home. Departure from Loughborough was 105 minutes late, but by missing several lengthy pathing stops arrival at Craigentinny was only 12 minutes late.
