Notes :
(1) 37152 on rear.
(2) 37221 on rear.
(3) The booked run over the branch from Redford Jn to Westfield was abandoned owing to a derailment.
(4) LASERman comments: the itinerary didn’t give a train reporting number from Glenrothes to Edinburgh, so would have thought that number would actually have changed at Edinburgh.
