(1) Malcolm Newman comments: I was on that tour which was organised by the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe. Although I was not at that school, the organisers extended invitations to other schools in the town. The stock was a Class 120 or 124 style DMU that came from the Paddington area. The route was predominately on the now-closed Great Central lines using the link from Ashendon Junction to Grendon Underwood Junction. I distinctly remember travelling via Nottingham Victoria although I cannot be sure whether we actually visited Derby. We probably went via Chesterfield and the “Old Road” to join the Sheffield/Doncaster route somewhere around Swinton.
(2) Route confirmation required.
