22nd September 1957

Stephenson Locomotive Society
Hammersmith & City and Inner Circle Rail Tour

Locos Used 16 'Oliver Goldsmith' & steam: L46
Stock Used booked for ex-Metropolitan Railway 'steam' stock

Route :

Loco Route
16 Edgware Road - Hammersmith (H&C line)
L46 Hammersmith (H&C line) - Paddington - Edgware Road
L46 Edgware Road - Victoria - Aldgte - Liverpool Street (2) - Baker Street - Wembley Park

Notes :
(1) Incorrectly reported in the local press of the time that the steam loco used was L44 (use of L46 confirmed from photographic evidence). Originally uploaded as hauled by L46 throughout, the timing sheet shows planned use of an LT electric at the start of the tour between Edgware Road & Hammersmith...now confirmed by Andrew Fairholm.
(2) At Liverpool Street the timing sheet shows footnote 'shunt to bay road and loco to take water'.
