Notes :
(1) 14099 was only in the consist when 70013 was hauling the train, 35518 was only in the consist when 34067 was hauling the train.
(2) John Clifford comments: The tour was originally advertised as being hauled by 30777 down & 34067 back. Having caused fires on the ECML in Sept 30777 was not available so 70013 was substituted. The advertised route was from & back to Victoria but as there was engineering work between Clapham Junction & Barnes the route was altered to the one shown. On the day a persistent signal problem at Old Kew Jn caused delays both ways.
(3) 47500 on rear.
