Notes :

(2) 67029 was booked to be added to the rear at the Eastleigh water stop however was added in Southampton UGL instead. The extended stop was due to a signalling failure in the Southampton Central area.
(3) Nick Wason comments: Original outward route was London Waterloo Linford Street Flyover Herne Hill Tulse Hill Streatham Tooting Wimbledon Woking however was changed to the route via Staines due to gauging issues in the Tooting area.
