(1) 45407 was incorrectly listed as 44932 when the tour Page was originally uploaded.
(2) Option of visiting Steamtown available.
(3) Detach leading 2 coaches, to go ECS to York, diesel hauled. Train was to have been double-headed for this section, but loco failures before the day prevented this. As the train was fully booked, this section was very crowded.
(4) Re-attach leading 2 coaches.
