18th May 1958 (or 18th May 1957?)

Trains Illustrated
The Daffodil Express

The running date of this tour has been queried - certainly a tour with the same name and organiser ran on 18th May 1957. Further evidence is that the image name is 1957MAY18JCBR002bw.jpg casting further doubt on this as the running date. On that occasion 73132 was not used, nor did the train pass through Hereford, but it is suggested that it is a photo not of a railtour, but a local working.

Locos Used at least 3440 'City of Truro' & 73132
