It's a common post on the motive power section from us photographers regarding what way the engines are facing, perhaps a permanent thread would be more use?

At 24/10/2013:

2857 - south
7812 - north
5164 - south
4566 - south
1501 - north
5643- south
4936 - south

34053 - south

43106 - south

Any changes please post them here!

7812 was most definitely facing north last weekend. Unless it was turned during its steam supreme duties on Wednesday and Thursday.

I'm going to have a guess (I can only be 50% wrong) that 44871 will be facing north on Sunday.

I have heard that they will be arriving facing north so you are probably right.
