Loco Used 3440 'City of Truro'

Route :

Loco Route

??? - Birmingham Snow Hill - ??? - Bath Spa ( - Swindon?)

3440? (?Swindon - ) ??? - ???

Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required. Dave Direktor comments: This looks like the I-Spy tour to Bath that I was on as a kid - Certainly 3440 and the timing is about right. We used to live in Weston-super-Mare and joined the tour at Bristol TM. We got off at Bath Spa and did the usual 'I-Spy' spotting stuff in Bath, returning to the train in the afternoon. It may well have carried on to Swindon ECS for stabling/turning/watering etc.
