Notes :
(1) The organizers were unable to secure timings for the Eastern Region portion of the tour, so the times given for that section were only estimated, and due to engineering works, the train was routed via Whitacre Jn between Water Orton East Jn and Kingsbury Jn in both directions. Everyone was asked to leave the train at New Holland Town as a loco run round was not possible and the whole formation had to be turned on the triangle there.
