Notes :
(1) This tour "shared" 6115 'Scots Guardsman' with the 6000 Loco Association "Yorkshire Venturer" tour run the same day. The tours were due to pass each other at Church Fenton at 15.19 but didn't due to the late running of the 6000LA train - it was still at York when this tour arrived, 35028 still waiting to couple-up to its train.
(2) Was the train diverted via Norton Bridge & Stafford (as not shown in the timing sheet) or was it booked by that route?
