Be interesting to see if 029 still takes the train to Boston tonight..
It did indeed, 6Z94 finally arrived 601 late, no schedules currently showing for Boston SS so I assume both 029 & 055 are staying there overnight

60028 was pressed into service to take 89001 on a delayed 1625 0X89 Toton to Barrow Hill and then returned solo as 1828 0F54

Revised schedule for 6Z96 cancelled off, but a schedule for 6Z97 (21:00 ex-Boston to Willesden) showing. Booked via the ECML. We'll see.

Departed Boston 22:03hrs. Consist only shows 029 coming back from Boston - Willesden. That would suggest 055 dumped at Boston.

Edit:
Confirmed 055 still at Boston.

6Z97 lost another 2 hours at Peterborough and then picked up a bit to reach Willesden 141 late, a quick cuppa for 029 and it left almost on time with 0503 6Z60 to Westbury Down TC, hopefully more success with tonights 6Z94, can't see any schedules currently to get 055 back to Toton

on rear of the Boston steel to Toton tonight.
Somebody on Rail Record a little over ambitious reporting 60055 as the only loco on the Boston steel .....

60029 worked last nights 2313 6Z94 Westbury Down TC to Boston without drama and is due to return south this afternoon
