I have been thinking about this for a few days and have come to the conclusion that, having studied numerous photos of diesels and electrics, that it is common practice to run either way round. I have even found photos of class 33's running double headed with the number 1 ends together.

On my fleet I have altered my 33's so that I have varied the leading ends. My Warships, on the other hand, appear to be symmetrical so it doesn't matter which way round they operate.

Finally, don't forget that diesels and electrics are designed to be driven from either end, that's why all the turntables were removed in the 60's.
