Notes :
(1) From the Rail Blue Charters Website: Due to the non-availability of our kitchen and sufficient first class carriages, we are unable to run the train on September 9th. This is due to power supply faults which keeps on recurring and needs to be further investigated as it makes the carriages unsafe to run. We apologise for this late decision but our guests best interests are paramount to our business.
