(1) Organised by FSS Railtours in conjunction with Special Trains and in association with the 60009 Group and the N.M.L.P.S.
(2) Booked route to/from Sheffield was via Ambergate Jn/Barrow Hill (outward) and Dronfield/Ambergate Jn (return). Jim Porter comments: At Derby we were informed that there was a broken rail ahead on the north-bound line and we would have to be diverted back the way we had come to get to Sheffield. As 60009 was facing the wrong direction it was detached and remained at Derby. A class 47 diesel was hooked up to the rear and we set off for Sheffield in the wrong direction. The reason for the train continuing on to Sheffield was to pick up the catering that had been arranged there. On returning to Derby 35028 came on and took the return trip as booked. In spite of the problems the train made good time and was only a few minutes behind schedule when we left it at Slough.
