(1) Route & loco confirmation required - above is taken from covering letter than was sent out with the tour tickets. Passengers who joined the train at Guide Bridge and New Mills on the outward leg were to return home from Manchester Piccadilly by service train. It is noted that the ticket and covering letter listed a different steam loco on the return leg (45407 in the covering letter, (4)4932 on the ticket) but Internet/photographic sources record the use of 44871 & 44932 per the ticket (same sources also confirm the use of 5305 & 5690). It appears all four steam locomotives were shared with another tour that originated (was organised by?) Steamtown at Carnforth.
Chris Heaven's ticket for the tour.
