Four Hull Trains class 170/3s arrived at Haymarket shed last weekend after being displaced from the Hull - Kings Cross services following arrival of the class 222 Pioneers.

It is planned to eventually deploy the new arrivals on North Berwick services where locomotive hauled stock is currently in use.
