(1) Chris Totty comments: On 28 May 1959 Uxbridge Council (can't remember if it was still an Urban District or had achieved Borough status by then) chartered a train for the local primary schools who were studying Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar in History. From my school diary of the day, we all bought a choc ice at Basingstoke so I presume we had a second loco change there from the WR to the SR variety.
