Notes :
(1) Loco propelling.
(2) At 11.35 the train went into the Depot area to be cleaned then went through the carriage washer with people still sitting in it. Arrived back into the platform at 12.15
(3) Brian Halford comments: I recall that the trip did not cover the Appledore to Lydd Town Town section and accordingly ran early from Appledore back to Victoria. (confirmed by Dick Franklin).
