88007 at Carlisle Kingmoor88007 at Carlisle Kingmoornewly delivered 88007 'Electra' seen stabled at Carlisle Kingmoor 5.4.17 I stopped off at Kingmoor on my way home from Carlisle to see if I could spot any of the new 68's and 88's and wasn't disappointed!   Spotted  from the Nature Reserve were:

68026: as yet unbranded (still in blue basecoat)

88007: 'Electra'

68027: as yet unbranded (still in blue basecoat)

88010: 'Aurora'

88009: 'Diana'

88006: 'Juno'

From the bridge

the same locos could be seen as well as a 2nd row behind them led by

88002: ' Prometheus' which had just returned from its test run.

unfortunately I could not ID the other 3 stabled behind 002.   I was impressed by the 88 and noticed how quiet it was when 88002 pulled out of Carlisle earlier.   The 88 has the same body shape as the 68 which many similarities between the 2 different classes.
