Notes :
(1) Was to have been 66721 but it was failed due to AWS fault.
(2) Originally booked for a FL Class 57, this was changed to a FL Class 66. However, the tour operator was informed the day before the tour that EWS are no longer able to crew the FreightlinerClass 66/5 as the driver refused to drive said engine without a freightliner pilot-man.
(3) Due to line closures south of York to repair damaged track from the accident earlier in the week, the train was unable to visit York as planned and Network Rail amended the schedule and routing to run to Doncaster Two-Way Goods for the loco change, also resulting in the loss of an off-train break.
