20th December 1969

Luton Town F.C.
(Football Special)

Loco Used 1688

Route :

Loco Route
1688 Luton - Brent - Acton Wells Jn - Southall - Swindon
1688 Swindon - Ealing Broadway - Acton Wells Jn - Brent - Luton

Notes :
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.
