Notes :
(1) Some sources list the 20's as 20066+20096 however four contributors have all confirmed 20066+20095 were used.
(2) For the avoidance of doubt, this was the original 76036 (ex-E26036) - re-numbered to 76003 in 1976.
(3) Due to late running an additional set-down was made at Darnall on the way back into Sheffield.
