Notes :
(1) Other trains ran - details required. Derek Thompson comments that 37140 did circular trips from Enfield Town to Stratford (brief known details below, further details required) and also that he had 56065 between Cambridge & Kings Lynn.
(2) 08631 was in use running shuttles between Cambridge station and Cambridge South Yard; 08631 on the south end with DMU 53265+59211+51211 plus the Nene Valley Railway's 'Thomas' on the north end. 69621 also reported working the shuttle with 08631 so presumably the steam locos changed at some stage during the day?
(3) Departed 20mins late from Cambridge.
(4) 15mins late off Ely.
(5) 60mins late departing Kings Lynn.
(6) 50mins late from Ely.
