56301 will lead on the outward trip and 56091 will lead on the way back ( subject to any rerouting of the train on the day).

Last weeks trip to Merehead saw 56091 lead on both the outward and return working. Some observers noted this and questioned this , however there was nothing wrong with 56301, the method of working at Merehead involves a traingle to run round the train and that results in the same loco leading in and out .
