Notes :
(1) Banked by 67029 from Victoria to Grosvenor Bridge.
(2) Train delayed after the train in front hit a tree between Redhill and Stoats Nest Jn, losing its 3rd rail shoegear in the process. Mark Herriott confirmed what happened following this : On arrival at Redhill it was established train could not continue northbound, therefore everyone was turfed off and train recessed in sidings at Redhill. After about 1 hour 67029 which had bought the stock in at Victoria came down from Stewarts Lane and was added to Country end of stock. Train then came out of sidings and everyone was allowed to board. The train then departed south to Earlswood. On arrival train reversed direction and ran via the Quarry Route to East Croydon and then as booked route.
