Notes :
(1
) Originally billed as 56130, 56020 was substituted at the last minute due to unavailability of 56130. BR also supplied the 20's as compensation for the loss of the advertised 56130.
(2) 33116 continued alone from Basingstoke as the train would have been too long at Waterloo to attach the 73's.
(3) 73005 worked on Electric for a mile from Queenstown Road and also, on diesel power, from Clapham Junction to New Malden Home Signal, due to locomotive failure. 73002 continued from New Malden Home Signal on diesel power only.
