Bedford Bletchley Rail User's Association

(B.B.R.U.A. Special Train No.12)

DMU's Used 2x 2-car sets

Route :

DMU Route
as listed Bletchley - Ridgmont - Bedford - (via MML) - Syston South Jn - Stamford - Peterborough - Norwich
as listed Norwich - (reverse of outward route) - Bletchley

Notes :
(1) Passengers had an option to travel on the Wells & Wolsingham Light Railway, where they made a return trip on a train hauled by 'Norfolk Hero' in at least the outward direction. Passengers were then bussed to Aylsham for a ride on the Bure Valley Railway for a steam-hauled retuen journey over the line.
(2) Departure from Norwich was delayed as a result of a late-running service train so arrival back into Bletchley was some 15mins behind schedule.
