Notes :
(1) 66117 on rear.
(2) 66056 on rear.
(3) Originally planned to traverse line to Killingholme but this was refused due to condition of track, (Killingholme branch has not seen any traffic for several years).
(40 Booked reversal point was Immingham Sorting Sidings but the train reversed short of this point on the arr/dep line.
(5) Timed to traverse the Scunthorpe Avoiding Line from Scunthorpe Trent Jn along 'E' line to sig.319 to rejoin the Down Main at 22m33ch. Instead the tour ran through Scunthorpe station with no reason given but presumably due to late running.
