Notes :
(1) 47787 on rear.
(2) 47826 on rear.
(3) During the turn round at Scarborough faults developed on both 47s word on the platform suggested that 47826, which would have led the train home, had flat batteries and wouldn't start, whilst 47787 had lost its turbo, but this was not confirmed by train staff.  DRS 66412 was summoned from York and worked the train home without any delays with 47787 providing ETS.
(4) Plus 47787, 47826 on rear.
