Notes :
(1) Run in conjunction with a depot open day at Aylesbury which was to celebrate the opening of the depot and the introduction of the new class 165 DMU's. Believed shuttle was hourly. Henry Allum also comments: I can also remember seeing 5029 'Nunney Castle' in the platform at Aylesbury station (did this work any of the trips to Princess Risbrough?). Paul Green confirms: 44932 did indeed work at least one of the shuttles to Princes Risborough,  as I saw 44932 at Princes Risborough. I did not record any further details apart from it arriving with a passenger train from Aylesbury and departing with another back to Aylesbury. Dick Franklin comments: As well as the steam trips there were additional Turbo trains advertised to run between Princes Risborough & Aylesbury.
