Timings continue in first table.

Mileages are as shown in the tour brochure.
The Mileages run from Hedon Road Bridge direct to No.3 Quay, however as this is not a signalled move, the train continued to Hedon Road Sidings to reverse,
then back to Hedon Road Bridge on the Up Line to reverse again to access the No.3 Quay.
