Notes :
(1) 34016 on rear.
(2) 37174 on rear.
(3) John Clifford comments : 34016 failed at London Bridge & was eventually replaced by 73133. As we left London Bridge 94 mins. late the plan had been to go to Caterham but not Tattenham Corner. As we were passing Purley we got an announcement that we would go to Tattenham but not Caterham as one platform at Caterham was blocked by a berthed train and the other one by a failed emu. After Purley the booked route was Purley - Caterham (Rev) - Purley (Rev) then as shown.
(4) 73133 on rear.
