Notes :
(1) Although referred to in the timing sheet as Ollerton Colliery, Richard Maund has confirmed the actual reversal point was at New Ollerton (LMS Loaded Wagons Branch) and not what some published Atlas's show as Ollerton Colliery (LMS Empty Wagons Branch).
(2) Route confirmation required. As push-pull stock was used it is likely that 84006 was used throughout - at least it was on the train at; Nottingham, Bilsthorpe, New Ollerton and Calverton Colliery.
