Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required - above is taken from tour ticket. Reversal points not detailed. D8402 was used (at least) 'up the truncated branch to Tooting Goods and back to Wimbledon', it being the first diesel-loco hauled train up the branch.
(2) Colin Withey has provided brief details of this tour but has the loco identity passing through Merton Park to Merton Abbey as D8406 - confirmation is therefore required.
