Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required - for FA Cup third round tie. John Stanley believes the train went to Bury Knowsley Street station as this was nearer Gigg Lane football ground. With regards to the routing John Stanley comments: The route taken is a complete mystery, but, I do recall an incident on the return journey when we went round a sharp curve too fast in the Stoke-on-Trent area and all the crockery in the galley crashed to the floor!
