Notes :
(1) Banked by 47746 from London Victoria to Grosvenor Bridge.
(2) John Clifford's comments: We left London Victoria slightly late but were keeping to this lateness. Between Woking Jn and Brookwood there was a large amount of pathing allowance to let the 09.42 Waterloo to Basingstoke pass, hence the stop outside Farnborough. It took a little while to get away from the Winchfield water stop and onwards to Salisbury we had difficulty in keeping to the schedule. After Westbury we caught up the 11.10 Weymouth - Gloucester, which was 13 minutes late off Westbury, so there was no chance of making up time. The 11.10 was also checked at Bathampton Jn to let the 12.00 Paddington - Bristol to go ahead. We reached Bristol Temple Meads over 21 minutes late. The 11.10 was also 21 minutes late. I left the tour at Bristol and made my own way home.
