|47812||Scarborough - Malton - York - Doncaster - Retford - Newark North Gate - Grantham - Peterborough North - March - Ely|
|47812||Ely - Thetford - Norwich|
(1) 47812 (D1916) on rear.
(2) 35518 only in consist when 34067 hauling the train.
(3) This tour was originally booked for 60800 "Green Arrow" but 60800 failed its boiler exam so 34067 was substituted.
(4) The original plan was to have steam through to Scarborough & for the engine to come off in Holgate Sidings on the return. However, as it was felt that 34067 would not have enough coal to do the extra mileage, the tour was amended to that shown above. A coaling stop was requested at March but this was declined by Network Rail. The water stops at Peterborough West Yard & Doncaster R.M.T. could not be used for coaling either as they are both under the wires.
(5) NR refused entry to York for the loco change due to volume of traffic, hence the loco change in Holgate Sidings.
