Notes :
(1) 37706 on rear.
(2) John Clifford comments: The outward run was slightly delayed by some slow running in parts, possible due to some poor quality coal but the arrival in Weymouth was just 9mins late. On the return there had been some delays on the Westbury - Weymouth line & we had to wait for the 17.30 Weymouth - Bristol to go (it went at 1745). There was some fine running through the New Forest. After the water stop we were going well again until Eastleigh when we caught up a freight train which we had to follow to Basingstoke. After this there was a good sprint to Woking. Arrival in London was 12mins late.
