Notes :
(1) For visit to Doncaster Works Open Day. Andy Cole has a photo of the tour at Doncaster with 08876 at the south end - was this used on the tour or was it just to shunt the stock out of the station whilst tour participants visited the works?
(2) Train terminated at Clapham Junction due to sticking brake blocks.
