Having picked up the pilotman, the two 67s now restart the train away from South Ruislip and away from their normal route, the far left track to Marylebone. Instead they take the line straight on, formerly the main line into Paddington as far as Greenford before taking the line to West Ealing and Acton, then "round the houses" to East Ham to pick up extra stock. 09:39, Thursday 3rd April 2008. 67003 on the rear of the train has a "tailboard" made by the crew, reading "To Hire This Skip Call Toton 087 66666"!
