Notes :
(1) The original plan was to run the class 40 as far as Doncaster and back, a 37 from Doncaster to Barnetby and back with a pair of 20's onwards to Cleethorpes and back. The itinerary letter stated that due to problems on BR (ER) the 40 may be run throughout.
(2) The itinerary stated via Cheetham Hill Jn; confirmation is required as to which way the return working went.
(3) The booked route from Broughton Lane Jn was changed on the day for operational reasons.
