(1) The RMB was shown in the itinerary as being detached from the train at Plymouth to be re-attached for the return.
(2) There was no run to Birmingham in the morning with the train running round at Worcester Shrub Hill. Travellers from Birmingham and the North West were able to connect off the Glasgow - Bristol over-night. The Weston-Super-Mare routing was to effect a photo stop at the seaside resort.
