(3) The return leg was heavily delayed due to gauging issues with 61306 over the Up Fast line between Willesden West London Jn and London Euston. The Up Slow line was closed due to engineering work. The train then returned to Harrow & Wealdstone, where it terminated. Passengers then changed for a local London Northwestern Railway service to London Euston.
