Notes :
(1) Photographic evidence exists of 51218 carrying 1T55 suspended from the handrail above the smokebox number plate (so presumably a different run from that in the photo below); was 1T55 used throughout or only for one of the three round trips (in which case, which one and what other headcodes were used)?
