Notes :
(1) 20001 & 20002 were class 70 electrics, formerly numbered CC1 & CC2 respectively. According to the tour brochure, Waterloo to Seaford was booked for haulage behind 20001 or 20002, the legs from Brighton to Havant and Liss to Waterloo were booked to be hauled by 20003 but this was reported out of service.
(2) For open day. Locos at Longmoor: ex-BR steam locos 35028, 34023, 41298 & 75029. Timing sheet reports an LMR special train, booked to be hauled by diesel loco 'General Lord Robertson' booked to depart Longmoor Downs at 16.10 and return from Oakhanger at 17.10 - passengers could purchase tickets for this service if desired. A private special is also mentioned, booked to depart from Longmoor Downs at 15.45 - further details of this are required.
(3) Turning of stock via the Preston Park/Hove triangle - this operation was not given timings in the tour brochure and Brighton was given as a refreshment stop. Was this stock turning operation just made available to passengers on the day who wished to remain on the train?
(4) Originally uploaded as E6042 however John Clifford suggested it should be E6048 and in a brochure in John Debens collection E6048 is written against the leg from Seaford to Brighton.
(5) A tour brochure in John Debens collection has a line through the suggested use of 20001 or 20002 against the leg from Waterloo to Seaford and 20003 written in instead - was this loco used or was it 20002 as shown in the above tabulation?
(7) A tour advertising leaflet described this as the BPPS's first rail tour.
