(5) Regarding the booked timings Alan Sheppard comments: original return timings had been deemed unsuitable for families so were sent back. When the final timings arrived, the Cleethorpes break was cut to one hour, which meant the train did not have time to be turned ECS, so the return was diesel hauled to Ulceby for a reversal. The final set of timings also included a 1 hr water stop at Doncaster R.M.T., thankfully however we did not have to wait time.
