Notes :
(1) Route & loco confirmation required - above is as advertised. Nick Garnham comments: Iím afraid I cant find details of haulage or timings, however the advertised route, in the on train brochure was as above. No word of whether it reversed at Leeds or avoided the station. The stop at Lancaster was advertised as 'for some hours'. Sheffield was not shown as a pick up point itís like we took Dore South curve, but again that is not clear.
