Notes : 
(1) Banked by 66058 from London Victoria to Grosvenor Bridge. 
(2) Off tour options: visit to the R.A.F. Museum at Cosford or Blists Hill Museum at Ironbridge.
(3) David Lodwick comments: On the return everything went fine until Rugby, where we took water. Then we found out that there were problems on the W.C.M.L. from Watford to Rugby, with the overhead wires down and signalling problems. We proceeded via the Northampton loop slowly as there was a queue of trains in front and behind us. We arrived back at London Victoria 39 minutes late, after one time being 55 minutes late.
