Notes :
(1) John Harrup comments: I seem to remember this was one of Chris Green's travel anywhere in the Network South East region for 5.00 days and it had been reported there were severe delays on the Isle of Wight ferries due to the number of people wishing to travel. I therefore only travelled from Hertford North as far as Clapham Junction. (Webmaster note: this was the occasion of the very first Network Day - cost was just 1). 'Mister C' comments: Hertfordshire Railtours reduced the price of the Vectis Velocipede after the Network Day was announced. We went over to the Isle of Wight but I don't recollect any problems with the ferries.'
(2) Last DMU car originally uploaded as 54482 in error.
(3) Booked route between
Harringay West Jn and Harringay Jn was the reverse of outward however the direct curve was taken for reason(s) un-recorded. Owing to the diversion a set-down stop was made at Alexandra Palace instead of Finsbury Park.
