Notes :
(1) 33109 dragged (on rear). Between Addiscombe and Elmers End, and between Hayes and New Cross, the train (formed of a pair of Class 423 EMU's) should have been propelled by 33109, but a control fault meant the EMU's had to use their own power on these sections, dragging the 33.
(2) 58023 detached at London Bridge as locomotives were not allowed at buffer stop end of Cannon Street Station. EMUs only London Bridge to Cannon Street, 33025 then attached at Cannon Street.
(3) Stock ran ECS from Platform 2 to Platform 1 at Elmers End.
