Loco(s) Route

Notes :
(1) 17013 was only in the train consist when 60019 was hauling the train, 35518 was only in the train consist when 34067 was hauling the train. Unusually the support coach was marshalled at the rear of the train when in the consist, not between steam loco and the train.
(2) Was train banked by the ECS diesel (booked to have been a class 47 but may have been 37516) from Victoria to Grosvenor Bridge Jn (as booked)?
(3) 34067 was booked on the rear of train to provide banking assistance between Weymouth and Wareham - confirmation is required that it did.
