Notes :
(1) Tour ended at New Cross depot due to a track fault. A special using A60 stock departed the depot at 14.28 and terminated at 14.40 at Whitechapel. Booked route onwards had been: New Cross - (via St Mary's Curve) - Aldgate East - Farringdon - Baker Street - Wembley Park - Uxbridge (rev) - Rayners Lane - Acton Town - Hammersmith - West Kensington (rev) - Richmond (rev) - Hammersmith - High Street Kensington (rev) - East Putney - Wimbledon (rev) - East Putney - High Street Kensington - Baker Street - Aldgate (rev) - Baker Street - Ladbroke Grove - Hammersmith (rev) - Ladbroke Grove - Edgware Road (rev) - High Street Kensington - Acton Town - Ealing Broadway (rev) - Acton Town
(2) Peter Heppenstall comments: the original tour was advertised to run on 19th April, this was a relief train which ran due to demand. It came to grief in New Cross Depot when one of the fourth rail shoes got caught under the centre rail. The tour on 19th April missed out the depot in order to avoid a repeat of the problem.
