Notes :
(1) 57601 on rear.
(2) 40145 on rear. 40145 was unable to top 57601 out of Fort William due to lack of time for run round/lack of fuel/weight restriction of both locos.
(3) Plus 57601.
(4) Tim Young comments: the train did not arrive in Fort Bill until approx 15:05 due to failure of portable RETB set at Helensburgh Upper. Train continued under paper instructions. On the return for no reason the train arrived approx 30 minutes late at Carlisle.
