(1) Stuart Smith comments: Due to 074 being unable to run-round in the bay platform at Ballybrophy, the whole train was propelled out via the branch to mainline connection, then pulled forward into platform 4 to perform the run-round successfully. Passengers were able to stay onboard during this additional shunt movement
(2) Above routing, platforms and lines are confirmed as both what was booked and what took place on the day.
