Notes
(1) John Clifford's comments: The train was named in honour of Dave Markwick, a long time volunteer of Hastings Diesels who passed away earlier in 2019. When originally announced, the routing after Charing Cross was to be via Crayford and Plumstead to Angerstein Wharf, then to Grain and back to Charing Cross via Blackheath. On the day I planned to join at Charing Cross. An announcement at Charing Cross told us that we had to go to London Bridge to pick it up. Apparently there had been a planning error so the train was not going to Charing Cross. The tour set off a few minutes late from Platform 6 at London Bridge. All down South Eastern trains had been using platform 7 but the maximum delay to South Eastern Trains had been only 4 minutes. On the Dartford Loop we caught up the 10.18 Charing Cross - Dartford so a slow run ensued. We stopped at Dartford Jn to let the 10.50 Gravesend - Victoria go across our path. On the return from Grain there was a stop at Church Lane Crossing for reasons I did not discover. On the Plumstead line we caught up the 12.41 Dartford - Charing Cross but managed to reach Angerstein Wharf early. At Angerstein Jn we followed the 13.35 Cannon Street - Cannon Street via Greenwich and the Dartford Loop. The stop on Erith Loop was to let 14.25 Dartford - Charing Cross precede us. The stop at Tanners Hill Jn let the 14.21 Tunbridge Wells - Charing Cross go ahead.
