Entries from April to December 2004 can be viewed here. All the Railtours which HDL has operated are listed and described on the Railtour archive page.Naturally, that page overlaps somewhat with this one. On this occasion our DEMU was enagaged in some timing-runs, empty but with simulated station-stops, to prove that it could keep to revised timings being planned for the winter timetable. This section was originally devised during the days when our train was used intensively on the Ashford & Hastings line, and was intended to provide an easily-accessed historical record of our train’s workings on the main line.
Whilst at Windsor & Eton Riverside, the DEMU and locos were involved in a minor derailment at very low speed.Know where Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and Coldplay played some of their very first gigs?From sightings of ghosts and monsters to traditions of streaking and sunrise sea dips, the revelations are here.The train was “topped and tailed” by Class 73 electro-diesel locomotives.The train travelled up to London Victoria via Tonbridge, Lewisham and Denmark Hill; then back to Bromley North; then via Sidcup and Woolwich Arsenal to London Bridge; to Hayes and back; to Caterham and Tattenham Corner; via Selhurst, Clapaham Junction, Kensington Olympia and Mitre Bridge Junction to Richmond; via Mitre Bridge and Stewarts Lane Junction to Victoria; and to Hastings via Tonbridge., a charity outing from Hastings to London and the Kent & Surrey areas, in aid of Help for Heroes, with bookings being handled by UK Railtours.
