This football special was destined for Bristol, however the fixture was postponed (to 10th February 1970) whilst the special was en-route, being turned around at Swindon. On the return a special stop was made at Ealing Broadway where many fans left the train. Perhaps the thought of returning to Luton empty handed was just too much.
