Notes :
(1) Loco propelling.
(2) Some trips continued beyond 'Bourne Again Junction' to 'Star Lane' on the outward journey, some on the return.
Reversal locations are unknown and require confirming for trips 1, 2, 3, 6 & 8.
(3) At the end of each operating day, the steam loco brings the stock down to Bourne Again Junction Loop then returns light engine to Somersham. With the stock out of the way, it is now possible to reverse up to the Museum, where it can reverse into the Loco Shed. The Class 03 is then used to propel the stock up the hill to Somersham & into the 'Carriage Shed', before it too reverses up to the Museum then reverses into the Loco Shed. The opposite of this procedure happens at the beginning of each operating day, see this page.
(4) This special operating day was organised by the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home charity.
