David Lodwick comments: In the morning, the E.C.S. could not go via the booked route, as there was a failed GBRf Auto-Ballaster train on the North London incline. After Camden Road Jn we went to Canonbury East Jn, where we reversed to go via Canonbury West Jn - Highbury Vale Jn - Clarence Yard Jn - Finsbury Park to Hornsey Sig. K440.
