(1) The intention was to run with 37's top and tail on the return, one to provide barrier vehicle at rear after the steam loco and support coach were detached, however 37406 arrived with a lighting failure so passengers in the rear coach were found seats in the remaining coaches and the rear coach locked out of use to form the barrier vehicle. 37406 was then placed inside 37410 and they were driven in tandem.
(2) Train ran as "The South Hams Pony" on this day. Originally planned to run in October 2006, this was day five of five days of tours under the banner "The Cornish & Devon Branch Week" and using multiple tour names over the period. Tickets were sold for individual named trains, for a whole day or for the complete five days (£225).
(3) Stock confirmation required - taken from what was used previous day.
