Notes :
(1) Tour diverted into Leeds due to very late running. Some passengers, Dave Jones among them, used a service train to return to Manchester.
(2) Originally uploaded as organised by David Isherwood, Dave Cook has since confirmed David Isherwood organised this outing on behalf of the Branch Line Society.
