Notes:
(1) Due to the late arrival back into London those passengers requiring an earlier arrival due to onward journeys were able to catch the 19.25 non-stop service from Brighton to Victoria (arriving 20.25) using their tour tickets.
(2) 3442 was put on display at Chichester station whilst the train went to Lavant and back behind the class 33.
(3) Owing to a track circuit failure the tour terminated at Preston Park, the 19.05 Littlehampton to Victoria service train making a special stop to pick-up the tour passengers to get them back to London.
(4) Green liveried class 73 - it is believed only E6001 to E6006 were in green.
