(1) Roger Geach comments: Due to the Penmanshiel tunnel collapse this tour did not go to the advertised destination of Carlisle (presumably due to lack of paths as a result of service train diversions) and was changed to be a 'mystery trip' from York.
(2) Route & loco confirmation required - the steam section was a circular tour which included Knaresborough & Sheffield, with 4771 being photographed at York then Brightside.
