A couple of corrections have been notified...

Morning all
 
A couple of corrections to the April listings:
 
The Darts to South Wales Transport were SN55HTF / DVK / DVL. SN55HTD went to Hulleys of Baslow.
 
The E200s from GA London were LX07BYJ / BYR / BYS, with BYR being the one going to Shelton for scrap.
