(3) Martin Diamond comments: The outward leg was diverted via Northampton, due to a track defect on the main line near Weedon. 45699 called at Penrith, due to problems with its injectors. 47746 replaced failed 45699 at Hellifield, the train was then further delayed following a stopping service train from Clitheroe.
