70038 York - (?reverse of outward route?) - Stockport
AC Electric Stockport - (?reverse of outward route?) - Birmingham New Street

Notes :
Geoff Monks comments: There was an official visit to 50A York shed where steam had finished the previous month but there were some stored locos in the yard. I am pretty sure it was via Standedge both ways and it was a very tardy run with 70038, the brakes came on two or three times at least on the way back, presumably lack of vacuum.
