Notes :
(1)
37227 + 37902 on rear.
(2) 33114 on rear.
(3) Delayed at Brockenhurst with dragging brake problems and failure of 37227 (oil leak) and 37902 (low amps). The 37's were therefore removed at this point.
(4) The booked route via Guildford was abandoned to regain time lost at Brockenhurst and also to get back to Woking for the handover of proceeds collected on the previous evening "Wanderette" specials. The presentation was made on behalf of 'DC Tours' by NSE SW Director, Mr. Peter Field, to the Chairman of the 'Woking Homes Committee'. Over 6000 was raised.
(5) 73134 working on diesel power.
(6) Was booked to be Waterloo to Vauxhall only with a diesel shunter but revised into circular tour using a class 60.
