GBRf class 73s front and back are probable.  No push-pull working.

Probably. They are using 73s with the same set on trips to Swanage.

I don't know how long the UKrailtours trip has been advertised - but have just been informed from a very reliable source that the Imber bus day was actually only confirmed yesterday. Also due to a lot of extra military training (so the MoD say ) the roads/Imber will only be open for a total of 5 days in August. My source of info was unaware of the rail trip.
