Notes :
(1) Nigel Pitt comments: 35 late departure from Par due to 43080 and 43070 failing at Lostwithiel. Single line working couldn't be instigated due to points failure! 57604 eventually arrived from Laira to assist failed HST into the loop. There was an FGW HST in front off us too. Had to vacate platfrom 3 at Par due to (assume to be) 1V49 09.41 Newcastle - Newquay to access the branch. Shot off towards Lostwithiel, only to be held at PR100, about a mile from Lostwithiel atation, for 35 mins until failed tram was in the loop. Had a very good run back (Totnes - Newton Abbot in just under 10 mins, Tiverton - Taunton 8 mins!) until getting stuck behind a stopper at Chichester.
