(1) 9014 was originally uploaded as 9018 in error, the correction being supplied by the Archives Officer of the Talyllyn Railway and later reconfirmed by John Debens from tour records he has obtained.
(2) Visit made to the Talyllyn Railway whilst at Towyn.
(3) There is a suggestion that 75020 may have been used on the return leg from Towyn to Macynlleth but this is not confirmed and other sources recall seeing two 'Dukedogs' when the train left just before midnight.
