Notes:

(2) This tour ran in conjunction with a cruise on the M.V. Balmoral from Portsmouth Harbour to Southampton Docks to view all seven P&O ocean liners: Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora, Azura, Oceana, Oriana and Ventura. A display by The Red Arrows was cancelled due to poor weather.
(3) The advertised route from Victoria to Guildford on the outward journey was via Mitcham Junction. The booked driver for this part was ill and his replacement did not know the road so the train ran as shown.
