(1) The itinerary mentioned an afternoon Fakenham to Dereham return trip but no times for this were given - confirmation is required if this ran. The second coach was reserved for passengers joining en route. The only photo stops were at Dereham and County School and the other stops were possibly for operational purposes only. There were 14 other stops made to operate the manual level crossings.
