Loco Used steam: 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

Route :

Loco Route
4472 Leeds - Wakefield - Doncaster - (via ECML) - London Kings Cross
4472 London Kings Cross - (reverse of outward route) - Leeds

Notes :
(1) 4472 ran with two tenders. Tour was in conjunction with a special opening of Museum of British Transport, Clapham. It appears from the ticket a special underground service also formed part of this railtour - further details are required.

A request from Tim Barber: I was a passenger on this train but didn't take any photos all day!! The main purpose was to record the start out of Kings Cross which I managed and is a cherished recording. I have never seen any pictures of this special. Does anyone out there have one?
