Notes :
(1) Tour postponed from 16/03/13, due to operational reasons with the steam loco(s).
(2) This tour was originally advertised to be double headed by 34046 'Braunton' & 34067 'Tangmere' from London Paddington to Plymouth and back to Taunton. Then 34046 from Taunton to London Paddington. However 34046 was unavailable and 44932 was due to replace it, but this too was unavailable, and 45407 was substituted.
(3) 35518 was only in the consist when 34067 was hauling the train. Stock confirmation required.
(4) 57601 on rear.
