Notes :
(1) 35461 only in consist when the steam locos were on the train.
(2) 67030 swapped for 67020 on account of being low on fuel (not refuelled on Long Rock as booked).
(3) Booked via Hullavington due to incorrect information being provided regarding Engineering Blockade at Thingley - rerouted to allow setting down of passengers at Bath and Chippenham without the expected transfer to road coaches (or fGW service 1A95).
