Notes :
(1) Andy Pullar, from the 1990 BLS Annual Report, adds that the route was complicated and the day was split either side of a lunch in the works canteen. The buildings listed above in the route table were passed by rather than entered.
(2) Used the same brake vans as the BLS tour on 2nd June 1990.
