Loco Route
47051 Loughborough - Leicester - Wellingborough - (North London Line??) - Clacton

Notes :
Information is scant on this tour and any further data will be gratefully received!
(1) Just one loco recorded for this tour, believed only one involved. Route confirmation required.

A leaflet Nigel has from the day indicates a second train also ran on the same date, from Hinckley and picking up at Narborough and Leicester to another unspecified mystery destination (which, according to a STN Alan Chilestone has, was also Clacton - confirmation if this train ran is required).
