Notes :
(1) 5535 on rear.
(2) 7402 on rear.
(3) 7791 on rear.
(4) Booked route was line 27L/4 via Bundel N but train reversed on the curve between Antwerpen Noord C & Antwerpen Noord B.
(5) 6041 on rear.
(6) Photo-stop was made at the former Tertre station, the booked reversal point. At the request of Mercia Charters staff on arrival, permission was given to run further up the branch and the train then ran a over the road crossing and went a further 200m or so, reversing on the river bridge just north of the station.
(7) For the avoidance of any doubt - the train reporting number used between Zottegem and Racc. Ollignies-Dupois is confirmed from the Infrabel timing sheet as (out of sequence) 18113.
