24th (& 25th?) September 1955

Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society
(A.G.M. Special)

Locos Used 4061 'Gladstonbury Abbey', 9027 (1) & 30304
Stock Used 6 coaches

Route :

Loco(s) Route
4061 London Paddington - High Wycombe - Birmingham Snow Hill - Wolverhampton - Shrewsbury
30304 Shrewsbury - Welshpool - Towyn
30304 + 9027 Welshpool - Towyn
30304 Towyn - Shrewsbury
4061 Shrewsbury - (reverse of outward route) - London Paddington

Notes :
(1) The
book 'Talyllyn Railway A.G.M. Specials' lists the 'Dukedog' used as 9008 however this is understood to be in error, 9027 being the loco used. The date for the trip is also recorded in the book as running on 25th September, but almost certainly in error per the ticket below and other sources (train probably returned overnight, arriving back into London on the morning of the 25th).
(2) Route confirmation required.
