Notes :
(1) Tour ticket suggests there may have been 'feeder' services into the tour (service trains?) - confirmation required.
(2) Photographic evidence confirms train stock consisted of at least 5 coaches (but probably 6) of LMS corridor stock.
(3) Originally uploaded showing the loco change between 69855 + 62360 & 62360 + 41102 as taking place Leyburn, not Hawes as booked.
