|?????||Cudworth H & B Yard - Brierley Jn - Hemsworth East Jn - Wrangbrook Jn|
|?????||Wrangbrook Jn - (1) Brodsworth Colliery|
|?????||Brodsworth Colliery - Pickburn & Brodsworth - Sprotborough - Denaby - Lowfield Jn - Mexborough - Wath Jn - Wath Yard|
(1) A reversal at Pickburn & Brodworth appears to have been required to access the colliery branch, or was the change of trains made at the junction?
(2) Despite the -5min connection at Brodsworth Colliery the latter train was held to allow connection. A third freight train was listed on the timing sheet (11.10am ex-Middleton Sidings) but the copy seen by the Webmaster carried the comment 'not patronised' next to it - does this indicate no club member travelled on it, or does this comment only apply the participant who's paperwork the Webmaster has seen?
(3) Hand-written note on the timing sheet stated 'continued on 13.00 Wath to Cudworth via Strairfoot (3˝hrs late!!)' - was this also a freight working?
(4) Timings shown as e.g. ??.?? ~ 09.04 were given on the timing sheet as departure times but the Webmaster suspects they are in fact passing times.
