(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.
