Notes :
(2) Ian McDonald comments: it appears that the train was originally booked for 45596 & 46229; however; BR decreed that any train over 10 coaches, this one was 11 plus support coach, was only to be hauled by a Class 8 loco, Hence 35028 subbed at short notice for the Jubilee.
(2) Confirmation required as to which class 91 hauled each leg on the ECML (possibly 91009 out and 91006 back?).
