Notes :
(1) 47805 on rear.
(2) Due to problems with 47843, 47805 was moved from the rear to the front at Preston. Martin Brown says, from memory, the train left Preston about an hour late. Loco confirmation is required for the return leg.
(3) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings. Train was reported 80mins late at Larbert on the return leg.
