Notes :
(1) Stock confirmation is required for the 'Dartmoor Pony' - was full rake [1] used, or was it reduced by one or more coaches to reflect the booking level?
(1) Webmasters comment: headcodes supplied originally for this date were 2Z36-2Z41 for the 'Dawlish Donkey' trips and 2Z42/2Z43 for the 'Dartmoor Pony' however on all others run this year the series stared at 2Z38. It is therefore thought that the same headcodes were used on this date, unless you can confirm otherwwise?
