DB 92ís have not had required mods for DLF and ICMU sensors so are not able to run under the domestic AC supply now, bar HS1.

Interesting topic. Anyone know what search parameters to put into sites to find them on the timetables?
Would like to nip down to dagenham dock to see one.

@crewearpley40 this video from 2:45 shows one of them from last year. Shows the wagon formation etc
https://youtu.be/VeFFITTgCDo

Be interesting to see what has changed since.

You can search Real Time Trains for a headcode, in that instance 6X77. If you want to look more generally then it's a case of finding a suitable point on RTT and then looking through for relevant services.

Interesting to see both staked and flat IPAs, as forthcoming from Revolution, on that service.

I searched dagenham dock for the week and found nothing that seemed to be that working. 

Is 6x77 the Head code for that working?

According to that video, yep. RTT doesn't find it, and as Chris says Google gives a Rail Record link to the path.

There are plenty of services, but you don't necessarily just want Dagenham Dock, here are all of the non-passenger services from Dagenham Dock on Thursday (random choice), but that doesn't include any of the car services, which actually go from Dagenham Dock Reception, giving you this list.

What I often find easier is choosing a location on the route, to pick up all those subtle variations in origins. If you look at Barking, for example, you get a list which includes both origins, and there are a good number of services - here.

However it's a DB cargo service its 1358   1407 ripple lane, 1413 barking  1444 gospel oak, 1452 West Hampstead  1530 Wembley euro freight. Departs 1721 via wcml, Northampton,  1930 rugby  2140 crewe  2202 warrington. She stables until 2250 at arpley,  Preston 2340, 0154 until 0408 Carlisle. 0622 Mossend

This is the Rail Record link Chris refers to.

Google shows an array of haulage in photos - 66, 92, 90 variously over the years. Really must crack on with my bi-level IPAs before the Revolution ones show up!

I'm doing the double deck ones, and they won't be a patch on Revolution's ones, but a nice complement!
