Remarks & Notes 
The EWS Company Train forms the 5Z05 1355 Toton TMD - Kings Cross with DVT 82146 leading + 10546 + 10211 + 11039 + Class 67 67029 at the rear pass Ratcliffe Power Station. A Driving Van Trailer (DVT) is a purpose-built railway vehicle that allows the driver to operate a locomotive at the opposite end of a train. Trains operating with a DVT therefore do not require the locomotive to run round to the other end of the train at terminal stations. Unlike many other control cars, DVTs resemble locomotives (specifically Class 91) and thus when the train is operating in "push" mode it does not appear to be travelling backwards. The vehicles have no passenger accommodation due to rules in place at the time of building that prohibited passengers in the leading vehicles of trains that travel at more than 100 miles per hour (160 km/h).
