I've been watching it too. It seems an odd thing to do with XX million pounds worth of locomotive, unless they have a thunderbird contract.
In the wonderful world of today's railway, it's probably cheaper to leave it stabled there rather than pay the crew, fuel and track access charges to run it light engine back to it's home depot - especially if it will be needed again in or around York in a few days time.

York camera update: 3 Cl 68's surrounding the Cl 66.

We need a David Attenborough voice over. "The DRS herd, having a found an interloper, have brought reinforcements and are now surrounding the sole DB locomotive..."

They look like the overdue new and sorely needed Trans Pennine Express locos that should have been in service months ago.
