Notes :
(1) A report in the 1954 SLS Journal stated that the excursion was 'from
Sheffield Victoria' but then promptly went on to say 'The excursion started from Wadsley Bridge...'. Was this leg just ECS? Departure from Sheffield Victoria was reported as punctual. Running time to Edwinstowe was 61mins (arrival was early) and the train returned punctually to Sheffield in 58mins.
