Notes :
(1) Booked route was: Willesden HL Jn - Mitre Bridge Jn - Kensington Olympia - Longhedge Jn - ??? - Redhill - Shalford - Guildford - Aldershot South Jn - Aldershot North Jn. Reason for diversion unknown.
(2) May have been a Mid Hants Railway extra service (Martin Birchall confirms the tour stock was stabled at Alton for the duration of the visit to the MHR).
(3) Booked route was: Aldershot North Jn - Ash Vale - Pirbright Jn - Brookwood - Byfleet & New Haw - Addlestone Jn - Virginia Water - Staines - Feltham - Hounslow - Old Kew Jn - New East Jn. Presumably the return routing was altered to cover track not traversed as booked in the morning?
