Notes :
(1) D2595 ran-round stock at Exchange Sidings to then propel stock to Strand Road Siding, (this is normal practice at this railway so loco is always leading over the Swing Bridge).
(2) Loco Propelling.
(3) Delays at William's Yard GF & Exchange Sidings No.2 GF, (shown with asterisks in timetable), were due to missing the time slots to pass the swing bridge during high tide, caused by the late departure.
(4) Delay at Riversway RR Loop, (shown with asterisk in timetable), while Bitumen tanks were shunted from Riverside Siding to Riversway Platform.
(5) Delay at William's Yard (Shed Door), (shown with asterisk in timetable), while the Bitumen tanks were shunted back to the Riverside Siding.
