5th March 1977
|Locos Used||47138 & 45016|
|47138||Cleethorpes - Lincoln - Newark Castle - Nottingham - Trent Jn - Sheet Stores Jn - Castle Donnington - Stenson Jn - Tamworth - Birmingham New Street - Soho South Jn - Soho East Jn - Perry Bar West Jn - Perry Bar South Jn - Aston - Stechford - Birmingham International|
|45016||Birmingham International - (reverse of outward route) - Cleethorpes|
47138 failed on arrival at Birmingham International, the return being made behind 45016. The appearance of 45016 was a real surprise as the class was rare at Cleethorpes at this time and virtually unheard of on the Lincoln to Cleethorpes line.
