(3) Chris Bracey comments: R'n'B in the tour name stood for Routes & Branches. The train followed the booked route and ran at night because the branches it went down and the two it should have done but didn't have no day time pathways. The train was also advertised to go to Windsor Central and St Albans Abbey but due to problems both were removed from the tour in advance of it running. At Paddington the screen showed the train as 20.07 to Euston, calling at Lymington Pier, Eastleigh, Henley on Thames & Bourne End. On arrival at Euston it was on the arrival screen as 04.26 from Lymington Pier.
