Notes :
(1) Tour postponed from 23/02/13 and then again from 06/04/13.
(2) This tour was to have commemorated the 60th Anniversary of the introduction of 'Britannia' class Pacific locos on the Great Eastern line.  It was originally advertised to be hauled by 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' which was a G.E. engine in the 1950s. However 70013 was unavailable, so 34067 'Tangmere' was substituted.

(3) 34067 running tender first.
