(1) Dave Kirwin reported seeing the train on the outward leg at Carlisle with 47851+47787 however according to Alan Chilestone it was routed ECML and this ties in with the NENTA Traintours advertising brochure and has been subsequently confirmed by NENTA themselves. Off train options were (a) York, (b) Durham & Beamish and (c) Newcastle. Passengers were able to use connecting train services from Colchester [joining/leaving at Ipswich], Wymondham, Thetford & Cambridge [joining/leaving at Ely] to get to/from this tour.
