Notes :
(1) Chris Totty comments: There were no timings as we just set off when everyone had arrived from the airport. I went over from Jersey the day before and spent the day clearing flangeways and weeds, with a flamethrower(!) to allow the train to get to the Inner Harbour as special permission had been granted for this part of the Alderney Railway to be covered. Permission was refused to go along the breakwater. As a member, and qualified driver, of the Alderney Railway Society and the Branch Line Society I was allowed to drive this one!!
