Notes:
(1) 47474 on rear.
(2) 47533 on rear.
(3) Was advertised to traverse the Seabanks Branch and the Middlesbrough Old Town Branch, but didn’t (Seabanks Branch due to "too much traffic" and the Middlesbrough Old Town Branch due to track condition).
(4) Recorded by LASERman as being via the 'down loop' but not sure now exactly what lien that referred to.
