Notes :

(2) John Clifford comments: The tour was the one which Steam Dreams now operate each year to commemorate the end of Southern steam on 9th July 1967. This year, with the co-operation of various TOC's, Network Rail & West Coast Railways, they got a schedule on the outward journey which compared favourably with the former Bournemouth 2 hour trains. On the return the best that could be achieved was a run from Yeovil Junction to Waterloo with only one stop at Salisbury for water. Added to this was the use of 48151 on the Weymouth - Yeovil Junction leg. In the event we would have reached Waterloo on the return had there not been a stand for nearly 10mins outside the station since our route into Platform 16 was blocked by other trains. The tour was originally advertised as being hauled by 34046 'Braunton' but, as this engine is not yet ready for main line use, 34067 was substituted.
