I expect that like many of us, my assemblage of older coach kit builds that aren't quite up to current standard was out of use on a shelf; until I was reminded of the weekly ECS train from the KX area to Doncaster works for repairs which couldn't be dealt with locally. This usually got a V2, 9F, or VB fitted eight coupled goods loco to cope with the brake and bearing defects inflicting extra drag, and was often a very eccentric collection of stock.

Should think this must have been a common feature all over the steam railway, probably persisting into the early D&E period.
