Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required, above is from booked timings. Seen on the Mildenhall branch, Stoke Ferry & East Rudham. An advertising sheet seen by the Webmaster showed the motive power as a 4MT with a J.15, although the latter had been crossed out. The sheet also stated that the tour 'is being covered by Anglia Television' and that it was the 'last opportunity to travel on the Mildenhall line - closing 18/06/1962'.
