Loco Route
66063 London Victoria - Latchmere Jn - Kensington Olympia - Mitre Bridge Jn - Willesden Junction HL - Gospel Oak - Camden Road - Finsbury Park - (via ECML) - York
66063 York - (reverse of outward route) - Mitre Bridge Jn - (1) - London Victoria

Notes :
(1) Train lost about 20 minutes between Mitre Bridge Jn and Kensington Olympia - NR timings suggesting a diversion of some sort took place - confirmation of what took place is required. Could a reversal somewhere have taken place (67012 is understood to have worked the ECS from Victoria but might this have been involved?).
