Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings. Adrian Austen believes the routing round Birmingham both ways was not as per booked times as a reversal would have been needed at Birmingham New Street each way, but no time was allowed for it. Return routing after Stafford on the return leg stated; Rugeley then Bushbury Jn, Portobello Jn & Bescot etc which also makes no sense!
(2) Off tour option; visit to the International Garden Festival, Liverpool.
