(1) Passengers had to make their own way to Weymouth Quay to rejoin the train.
(2) 33114 on rear.
Not strictly the tour itself, but heading down the branch without passengers
gave the tour participants a chance to chase and photograph the train. Here
we see 33114 squeezing down the Quay line en-route to Weymouth Quay
station in some nice December sunshine (photo: Craig Simmons)
