(1) Tour was to have run in memory of Rail Blue Charters' Commercial Director, Mark Honey, who lost his fight with cancer just before Christmas 2010. From the Rail Blue Charters Website: 'We sincerely apologise for the late cancellation of this train. Unfortunately, our kitchen carriage became unserviceable at the last moment. We took the decision to postpone the train to ensure that you, our valuable guests, receive the service you are entitled to onboard. This decision was not taken lightly as you can appreciate this was the Memorial Train for one of our directors. At the moment we do not have a firm date yet'.
