Notes : 
(1) This tour was an E.C.S. move from Ipswich to Eastleigh, and was made available to the public to raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. 
(2) It was originally advertised as 'The Anglian Yeoman' and was to feature a class 86 'top & tail' with a class 47 from Ipswich via Walton-on-the-Naze and Harwich to Norwich, a class 66/7 from Norwich to Peterborough, a class 92 from Peterborough to Acton Lane, then 59003 'Yeoman Highlander' from Acton Lane to Eastleigh. Unfortunately, despite the organiser's best efforts, the class 86, 92 and 59 were all unavailable, so the train ran as shown above.
(3) 66759 on rear.
(4) 47812 on rear.
