Notes :
(1) Although it had been suggested that the train visited Melton Constable, David Rees (joint organiser of the tour and General Secretary/founder of the M&GN Society) confirms the above routing to be correct. He also confirmed the location of the photo below to be Sutton Bridge. This was the M&GNJRS's third railtour.
(2) It seems likely this was a loco-propelling move?
