Notes :
(1) Originally uploaded as having been organised by Flying Scotsman Services. Dick Franklin comments: There was a train (1G10) with 34027 dep Cambridge at 07.50 to Kings Lynn arr 09.05 which, because of the formation, I am not convinced was for the general public. Also a train (1G21) with 70000 was scheduled 1940 Kings Lynn to Cambridge arr 2058, again, because of the formation, I am not convinced was for the general public.
Although the title suggested a weekend event, I have no idea what happened on the Sunday.
