????? Edinburgh Waverley - Haymarket - Haymarket West Jn - (reverse of outward route) -  Mossend Yard
????? Mossend Yard - (?reverse of outward route?) (1) - Crewe

Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required on return from Mossend Yard to Crewe. David Heywood reports that '86019 took the tour back from Glasgow at least as far as Carlisle'.
(2) Confirmation that the loco working with 20095 was 20206 is required - though originally uploaded as 20206, thsi has been questioned with 20106 being suggested as the alternative, however photographic evidence shows it was a class 20 with central headcode box which would seem to exclude it being 20106?
