Loco(s) Route
66079 (1) London Waterloo - Clapham Junction - Wimbledon - Surbiton - Hampton Court Jn - Weybridge - Woking - Farnborough Main - Basingstoke - Worting Jn - Winchester - Eastleigh - St Denys - Northam Jn - Canute Road LC (3)
66086 Canute Road LC - Northam Jn - St Denys - Eastleigh

Notes : 
(1) 66086 on rear.
(2) 35469+3098 were only in the consist when 66079 was on the train. 
(3) John Clifford comments: The train left slightly late, but this was not a problem. After Hampton Court Jn we caught up the 07.50 Waterloo - Woking stopper, but this was allowed for in the schedule. At Worting Jn we were held to let the 08.35 Waterloo - Weymouth and the 05.05 Lawley Street - Southampton M.C.T to go ahead, but again, the schedule allowed for this. After leaving the main line at Northam Jn we were proceeding slowly when disaster struck. The front coach (35469) derailed as did the leading bogie on the second (3098). We waited there until the relevant investigations had been carried out and after 3 hours 66086 returned the train to Eastleigh without the derailed coaches. The train terminated at Eastleigh and passengers return home by South West Trains from there or from Southampton Airport where there had been an extra stop. Once the two empty coaches had been re-railed they were taken into Southampton Eastern Docks by 66079, then on 06/11/16, taken to Eastleigh Arlington. The train is scheduled to be re-run on 08/04/17.
(4) Nick Bartlett comments: The Rail Accident Investigation Board's report, put the cause of the derailment, as due to track spreading.
