(3) John Clifford comments: This tour was first advertised as being 34067 'Tangmere' from London Waterloo to Exeter St Davids and 34046 'Braunton' from Exeter St Davids to London Waterloo, with 34067 banking from Exeter St Davids to Exeter Central. However 34046 is not yet ready for main line work so 30777 'Sir Lamiel' was substituted. It was then found that 30777 is out of gauge and the tour then became the one shown, as no other steam engine was available. Since there are no facilities for turning an engine at Exeter, 34067 had to be dragged backwards to Laverstock South Jn, so that there was steam haulage for at least part of the return journey to London Waterloo.
