Notes :
(1) Route & traction confirmation required. Seen in the Shrewsbury area hauled by 2x class 24. Rod Miebs travelled on what he believes was a
Euston to Aberystwyth Merrymaker on this date (so very likely this train) and comments that a trip on the VoR was included in the price. In the background of his photos is class 24 no. 5142 - was this one of the locos on the tour?
