Loco Route
????? ??? - ???

Notes :
(1) Visit to Oxfordshire Ironstone Co, Wroxton, Banbury. Train was photographed at various points along the line. The lien owned 2x very old ex-GWR brake vans and it is suspected these may have been used as the stock, maybe supplemented by open wagons (confirmation required).
(2) Afterwards the party, or at least some of them, travelled by ordinary service, from Banbury to Leamington Spa behind 6007 'King William III', took some photos then joined the 11.40 Birkenhead to Paddington, hauled by loco 6013 'King Henry VIII'.
