Notes :
(1) This eighty four mile tour was achieved using two coaches for the 150 passengers involved, and despite the complex itinerary arrived back at Nottingham Victoria about half an hour early. The booking form quoted the tour was due to make a total of 13 reversals (Webmasters comment: the above routing suggests in fact 14 reversals took place - the required reversal at Warsop Jn seems to have been overlooked in the tour timings sheet as it was not shown as a reversal point, unlike all the others).
