Notes :
(1) Hauling 4-REP 2005.
(2) Martin Pettit comments: 1567 added as interior lights were not working in 2005, however Nick Lawford suggests there was slightly more at issue:
2005 suffered a motor generator failure at Deal. The motor generator set supplies auxiliary power which does include lighting but not the reason for failure. When 2005 failed during the day lights were not the issue : what was the problem was loss of AWS and loss of rear tail light [powered by lit red rear roller blinds]. 1567 was attached at Dover to provide auxiliaries: only then did the jobsworth guard insist on the train lights being a problem. A very rare case of a 4-REP being multipled with another 4car: maximum with a REP was any 2-car. Greg Beecroft adds: The motors in 4-CEP 1567 were cut out, so it was being hauled by the REP.
