Notes : 
(1) John Clifford's comments: This tour was run to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of Southern steam on 9th July 1967. On the day the start was delayed by a trespasser at Queenstown Road. Once underway there was some good running and we were hopeful of getting to Salisbury only a few minutes late, but were stopped outside to let the late running 11.12 Portsmouth & Southsea - Cardiff to clear platform 4. On the return there was a slight delay at Sherborne before the train could get away. Unusually no water was taken at Salisbury. At Romsey the wrong route was set so we had to wait for this to be corrected. There was a signal stop at Eastleigh East Jn but I did not ascertain the reason for this. A T.P.W.S. problem near Haslemere caused the train to stop suddenly so we reached there late and were held for the 20.53 Portsmouth & Southsea to Waterloo to precede us. A further problem was caused by a track circuit failure near Farncombe. All this resulted in an arrival back at Waterloo nearly half an hour late.
(2) At Yeovil Railway Centre steam loco 'Lord Fisher' was giving rides to Clifton Maybank, using Toad Brake van B950603 & D.M.U. coach 59515.
