26048 is seen stabled at Guide Bridge in the headshunt that was used by locomotives that were taking over a train that had come from Liverpool or Manchester Central. Examination of the LMR summer 1961 timetable suggests that this would be either the 9.25 am Liverpool to Hull or the 930 am Liverpool to Hull both of which were allowed 6 minutes for a locomotive change at Guide Bridge. Saturday 22.7.61
