(1) Tour brochure carried the comment: 'Special commemorative train to mark the last day of London Transport steam passenger train working'.
(2) Tony Hillman  has offered a photo from the
Bluebell Railway Museum Archive believed to be of this tour, but it shows LT: 5. Confirmation is therefore required if this was in addition to the use of LT: 18 and/or how the use of LT: 5 fitted in on this day.
