Notes :
In addition, the previous evening (10/8/91), there were positioning workings also available for enthusiasts, Kevin Heath (passenger on train 1 from Derby to Stoke-on-Trent and train 2 from there to Crewe) and Richard Rooker have provided the following details;

Date Train No. Locos Route
10/08 1 60010 + 60041 16.54 Derby - Nuneaton - Stoke-on-Trent - Crewe
10/08 2 58047 + 58029 18.29 Derby - Crewe (direct routing)
10/08 3 20143 + 20214 19.55 Stoke-on-Trent - Chester

In respect of these workings on 10th August John Cassey adds; I was on train 1 from Derby being hauled by the class 60ís. The move was do the 60ís to Stoke for the 58ís to Crewe for the 20ís to Chester. However there was a farce on train 1 due to a signaling failure near Nuneaton which meant we arrived at Stoke after the 58ís had left. I remained on the 60ís to Crewe then took the 20ís to Chester. At Chester the 20ís then turned the train on the triangle and may have returned to Crewe.
