(1) Train was used to deliver 3205 & 4555 to the Dart Valley Railway.
(2) R. Dobson offered what was basically an identical itinerary using the same locomotives as having run on 2nd November however this is believed to be a date error as it seems very unlikely 4555 & 3205 were to be delivered to the Dart Valley Railway twice...
