Notes :
(1) 670xx on rear.
(2) 67019 on rear.
(3) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings (excluding booked reversal at Foxhall Jn). Was booked for haulage by steam: 35028 'Clan Line' but diesel substituted. NR timings showed a reversal at Foxhall Jn but it is assumed as the train was not steam hauled that this did not happen. NR timings also suggested this was to be formed of 12 coaches with class 67's top-n-tail.
