Notes :
(1) Was booked via Sleaford avoiding line but, as confirmed by Paul Stewart; although booked via the avoiding line, B.R. had inspected the line the week before, condemned it and so it was clipped out of use. It has not been used by anything since, although is planned to reopen on 14th April 2014!

(2) Train stock swapped from DMU to EMU as it was felt there was not enough fuel to make the full journey.
(3) Route confirmation required. Tour information mentioned the use of a class 08 in the docks but Jeff King has no note of this so it is assumed it did not happen on the day?
