Notes :
(1) This tour is noteworthy as the only occasion on which a 2-BIL unit has run under its own power to Weymouth or East Grinstead.  It was also the only passenger use by a 4-SUB unit to these places. The trip was split into three sectors for passengers travelling in the 2-BIL unit (2090); Sector A from Charing Cross to Weymouth, Sector B from Weymouth to Portsmouth Harbour and Sector C for the remainder of the tour.
(2) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings. In particular,
John Broderick's timing sheet has the section from East Croydon to London Victoria at the end of the tour crossed off - does this mean the train was terminated at East Croydon? Actual timings provided by Michael Trower also seems to confirm termination at East Croydon. If confirmed, the reason for the early termination is unknown.
