The East Coast Main Line was closed south of Peterborough over the late summer Bank Holiday, coinciding with a strike by Cross Country staff. To provide a link between the ECML and the Midland Main Line, West Coast Railways provided a trainset to run 3 connecting service trains between York and Sheffield via Leeds and Wakefield Westgate. Here Class 47 No. 47746 leads the train as it passes Copmanthorpe on 25th August 2019 with the second service of the day, the 14.47 from York to Sheffield.
