Notes:
(1) John Clifford comments: On the outward leg there were delays in the Lewisham area, possibly caused by congestion. Approaching Ashford we were diverted on to the Up line at Harringe, due to signalling problems in the Ashford area. The stop at Ramsgate on the return leg was to water the Buffet car and toilet tanks. The delay was caused by platform staff not being available to dispatch the train. The lateness was wiped out by omitting the pathing stop at Faversham.
