Jim Porter comments: There was an additional pickup at West Ruislip due to a landslip between Ealing Broadway and Greenford and the homeward bound had to terminate at South Ruislip. Tour tickets were valid on the 10.10 ex-Paddington to West Ruislip and the 20.44 South Ruislip to West Ruislip & 20.46 South Ruislip to London Marylebone. Outward bound was late arriving at Gerrards Cross because of speed restrictions due to the landslip, homeward bound was a mirror image of outward except the train terminated at South Ruislip.
