Notes :
(1) Andy Pullar comments:
The entire tour was worked by 47847 + 47843 (in multi) although due to recurring electrical problems with 47843 it shut down several times during the day so did not power for the entirety of the day although it was successfully re-started by a fitter each time so managed to power for most of the day (although exact sections it was shut down are still unconfirmed). 47843 was also the cause of a delayed start in the morning which caused a knock-on 70 minute late arrival into Carlisle.
