Notes: 
(1) 67005 on rear.
(2) 70000 'Britannia' replaced failed 60163 'Tornado'.
(3) 35451 was only in the consist when 70000 was on the train.
(4)
Due to late running of the outward leg, caused by a failed freight train, there was insufficient time to service 70000 at Shrewsbury, so the return leg was piloted by 66103.
