Route:

1Z86 : Bristol Temple Meads to Haywards Heath

Loco Route
E850 Haywards Heath - Preston Park - Hove - Worthing - Chichester - Havant - Cosham - Fareham - Botley - Eastleigh - Chandlers Ford - Romsey - Dean - Salisbury - Warminster - Westbury - Trowbridge - Bath Spa - Bristol Temple Meads
E850 Bristol Temple Meads - (reverse of outward route) - Haywards Heath

Notes :
(1) This was originally advertised as an East Croydon - Bristol via Haywards Heath, but amended to Haywards Heath - Bristol due to an engineering block in the evening which prevented the stock getting back to Old Oak Common. As there was nowhere suitable to berth the stock north of East Croydon, the tour started & terminated at Haywards Heath with the stock berthing at Redhill overnight. All this meant that there was an hour longer in Bath & Bristol compared with the similar trip on 17/2/2007.
