Notes :
(1) Ian Umpleby comments: The tour was retimed at short notice to leave Boulby at 16.11 to allow passengers to detrain and inspect the site.
(2) Jeremy Sleightholm comments : Though the itinerary and timing sheet indicated we would be using the Longlands loop this did not happen on the day, the train being routed from Northallerton East Jn through Northallerton station to Longlands Jn.  This was because on the previous afternoon the Civil Engineer had refused its use.
