Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required. Alex Cunningham also comments : There had been a problem coupling the brakes on the class 37 to the SRPS stock so train was over an hour late when I joined at Westerton.  Intention was to run to Fort William but due to late running train was turned back at Tulloch.  Return was behind black 5 44871 which had come forward from Fort William to Tulloch with support coach.  44871 stalled near the top of Glen Douglas bank after steam pressure fell, bringing the brakes on, but after a blow up got going again shortly afterwards.
