Loco Route
34067 Bristol Temple Meads - Filton Abbey Wood - Bristol Parkway - Westerleigh Jn - Yate - Gloucester - Standish Jn - Kemble - Swindon - Foxhall Jn - Didcot North Jn - Oxford - Wolvercot Jn - Ascott-under-Wychwood - Moreton-in-Marsh - Evesham - Norton Jn - Worcester Shrub Hill - Worcester Foregate Street - Malvern Wells - Ledbury - Shelwick Jn - Hereford - Abergavenny - Maindee North Jn - Maindee East Jn - Severn Tunnel Junction - Chepstow - Lydney - Gloucester - Yate - Westerleigh Jn - Bristol Parkway - Filton Abbey Wood - Bristol Temple Meads

Notes : 
(1) 34067 'Tangmere' replaced unavailable 34046 'Braunton'.
(2) John Clifford comments: At Worcester some poor quality coal was taken on which culminated in the train being over time at Gloucester, while a 'blow up' was made. This also meant that we stopped at signal B134 north of Yate, while steam was raised again.
