Notes :

(3) Stuart Hicks comments: Reasonable time was kept all day, although we were late into Okehampton and thence to Exeter, where the stop was curtailed, but we left slightly late. Back at Reading the relief feeder line was used as planned. 
(4) This tour was originally advertised to visit the Parkandillack line, but this was not possible due to the poor condition of the track. So a trip to Meldon Quarry was substituted.
