David J Hayes says "The Working Time Table for this period shows this train running as 6O63 (Southern Region headcode EA), the 19:45 SSuX Stratford LIFT (London International Freight Terminal) to Dover Marine, which was due through Kensington Olympia around 8:40pm, so was a little late on this day. Such workings to and from Dover ran as Air-Braked services and were pretty much in the minority on the West London Line, as most freight traversing this busy cross-city axis ran as Class 8 services. I think I'm correct in saying that much of the traffic handled at Stratford LIFT at this time consisted of imports of perishables, such as fruits, vegetables and possibly meat".
