(1) Was booked to be worked by steam 70000 'Britannia' (running as 70047 and named '???' after a competition with ?Railway Magazine?) but this was failed upon arrival into Waterloo with a smokebox door issue and a class 33 is understood to have substituted. 70000 was repaired the next morning and went on to work the Eastleigh to Salisbury shuttles.
