Notes :

(2) John Clifford comments:
This was a short day out with a mid morning start and an early evening finish. There was some good running, but as ever, we had to fit in with other trains. After Barnes we caught up the 10.45 Waterloo - Waterloo via Twickenham and Brentford. Once on the main line there were platform speed restrictions at Winchfield and Basingstoke. Before Worting Jn we were slowed to allow the 07.35 Newcastle - Southampton Central to get ahead. The stop at Farlington Jn was to let the 13.45 Portsmouth Harbour - Waterloo to get ahead. After the Haslemere water stop we were slowed by a Speed Restriction at Shalford Jn. On the final leg we caught up the 15.53 Windsor & Eton Riverside - Waterloo after Feltham and then followed the 15.37 Waterloo - Waterloo via Brentford and Twickenham from Twickenham, including a stop near St Margarets to let it proceed. I haven’t been able to establish why there was a stop at Stewarts Lane. It may have been that the driver wanted a green signal to ensure that the train was not stopped on the climb to Grosvenor Bridge.
