QUOTE (hairyhandedfool @ 11 Nov 2008, 10:17) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I imagine one of the locos would have pulled the train into Paddington and, because it is not needed as a standby (there are no loco hauled daytime trains into/out of Paddington) it is kept on the train when it is towed back to Old Oak Common. So whilst it is not needed on the train, it saves two drivers/trains doing the same trip.

Another point is it removes the need for a light engine working.

regards
