Notes :
(1) Originally booked for class 91 haulage between London & Leeds (both ways) and by 60009 'Union of South Africa' from Leeds to Carlisle. 3442 was substituted following 60009's earlier-than-planned removal from it's train the previous day for reason(s) unknown. The published timings do not reflect the very late change of steam haulage from northbound to southbound over the S&C. The reason for use of class 47s both ways on the ECML isn't known.
(2) Confirmation of locos used is required, but believed correct.
