(1) Confirmation is required if 69881 was involved in this leg (only reported as working to Whitby - not specified if West Cliff or Town?). Could 69881 have run round and taken the train to
Whitby Town with 62731 on the rear?
(2) Headcode on the Falsgrave Jn to
Whitby West Cliff leg was ??61 (as seen on photograph, but part-obscured) - was this used throughout?
