Notes:
(1) Was booked via East Putney but diverted because the guard had been left behind at Waterloo (he travelled on the 08:26 Hampton Court service).
(2) Booked via Earlsfield but diversion made to compensate for not going that way in the morning.
(3) John Clifford comments : This tour did not go according to plan. After the incident with the guard causing us to miss out the diversion via East Putney, the loco had problems at Romsey when running on diesel (reported as 74003 'ran hot and overheated, taking several attempts to re-start'). We were at Romsey for over an hour. Hence we got a replacement loco for the return journey. This time we did go via East Putney to compensate for missing it out in the morning.
(4) Confirmation is required if set 412 or 414 was used (originally uploaded as 412 however a set of records seen by the Webmaster gave the identity as 414, backed-up by coach numbers from set 414).
