(3) Gordon Lacy comments: The published (in the railtour brochure) times are at variance with those in the STN.  This was in part due to the advertised (& originally timed & in the brochure, too!) visit to Killoch (after arrival at Ayr) being vetoed by the Civil Engineer, Scotland (or so we were told!).  Plan B was to go to Hunterston instead. In the event, due to the late running, this also ended up being cancelled!  The Ayr - Chalmerston 'shuttle' was retimed to depart Ayr at 15:43 (the original brochure passing time at Ayr), but, err, actually left at 15:16!  In addition, the 16:39 (STN) departure from Ayr reverted to that originally advertised (17:00) as coach trips had been arranged to arrive back at Ayr for this time! Additional quote from the STN: "Class 47/9 and class 58 locos in tandem Retford GN to Ayr (when working in tandem class 47/9 provides ETH only)."
