37516 (2) Leeds - (reverse of outward route) - York

Notes : 
(1) 37516 on rear.
(2) 47760 on rear.
(3) 80217 was only in the consist when 46115 was on the train. Consist confirmation required.
(4) John Simmonds queries whether 37516 worked the York to Leeds leg (presumably with 47760 on the rear) - he believes from a phone call he had that morning that it may have done. John was a passenger on the return leg from Leeds to York.
