|as listed||Leicester - (reverse of outward route) - Bletchley|
(1) A reversal at Birmingham New Street was not expected (so presumably not booked). Route confirmation is required but suspect may have been Proof House Jn - Aston - Perry Barr South Jn - Soho North Jn where the booked route would be regained (again assumed to have been: via Galton Jn and Stourbridge Junction to Kidderminster - confirmation required).
(2) Train failed to stop at Kidderminster station and had to set-back to station to collect the 80 or so waiting passengers.
