Realtime Trains have timings for 11th August service
0930 1Z44 York-Carlisle http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U55319/2019/08/11/advanced

1640 1Z47 Carlisle-York
http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U55322/2019/08/11/advanced

The 18th, 25th August and 8th September services all have the same booked times.  Looks like Network Rail allocated fixed specific train paths for York-Leeds and v.v. steam specials used on an as required basis, because Flying Scotsman's special also ran to those times earlier this month.
