(1) 33025? on rear.
(2) Mike Harries comments: This train was advertised as picking up at Norwich, Wymondham, Ely, and Kings Lynn, and running to Doncaster, although Lincoln was promoted as the prime destination. When the tickets were sent out it was explained that 'Network Rail is unable to find us a platform at Doncaster station. Therefore we have been forced to terminate the train at Lincoln'. Also, passengers from King’s Lynn and Downham Market were taken by coach to Brandon, and the train avoided Ely outward by using the loop.
(3) Confirmation that the class 33 used was 33025 is required. Also the return routing confirmation is needed.
