Notes :
(1) This trip was originally booked to be hauled by first 70000 and 70013. This was later changed to 44932 and 45305 due to both Brits being unavailable. Due to 45305 failing on the Sunday, 35028 was used instead. The late start away from Victoria was due to 35028 not arriving until 10.44, the booked departure time.
(2) Banked from Victoria to Grosvenor Bridge Jn by 47760, assistance only being given at the start for a short distance.
