Notes :
(1) 20228 reported failed at Luton however Kevin Driscoll comments: I joined the 15.55 at Wellingborough, and noted that we had 20145+20228 to Finedon Road, where the latter failed. As the existing entry shows it failing at Luton, I would presume it was kicked briefly back into life again. Simon Creswell adds: I was also
on board the 15.55 St Pancras - Leicester and can confirm that 20228 was reported as having failed at Luton, but on alighting at Wellingborough both engines were working.
