Default Shortened 3-car class 365 unit?

There have been some reports suggesting that a class 365 unit is running
around on GN in 3-car formation. This includes a local resident who I've
known for many years stating:

"I have seen a short (3 car) 365 pass through Queen Adelaide. At the
time I thought I was seeing things."

Given what I know about the writer's history I would be very surprised if he
was wrong about this.

In addition, I saw the GN web site state last night that the 2214 train from
King's Cross was shortened to 3 cars and that first class would be
declassified. Others have reported elsewhere on usenet seeing similar
messages, not necessarily about that particular train.

A Network Rail source of mine could not add any information.

Anyone know what the story is here?

According to Wikipedia, one of the trailers has the pantograph while the other has the compressor, so I wouldn't have thought that a 3-car was possible.
