Notes :
(1) This tour utilised a Derby two car DMU to spend four and a half hours covering 64 miles taking in most of the freight lines in close proximity to Doncaster.
(2) It appears this tour may originally have been intended to run on September 28th as the ticket scan below shows, however the date has been crossed out in pen and the date of 5th October added to the rear of the ticket.
