(1) All first-class dining tour, £70 per person. The train carried a 'Railway World' headboard. For the bus enthusiast there was a 'road versus rail' option (£55) using a 32-seat luxury coach which was booked to leave Paddington at exactly the same time as the train. At Paignton passengers were to transfer to a preserved ex-Devon General AEC Regent V to get to Kingswear. A trip on the River Dart was also part of the day for all participants whether they took the rail or road option.
(2) Booked for haulage by 'Dumbleton Hall' or 'Lydham Manor'.
