Route : 1Z76 throughout

Loco(s) Route
8xxxx Coventry - Birmingham New Street - Wolverhampton - Stafford - (via WCML) - Upperby Bridge Jn (1)
08xxx (1) Upperby Bridge Jn – Carlisle
8xxxx Carlisle - (via WCML) - Larkfield Jn - Shields Jn - Paisley Gilmour Street - Gourock
8xxxx Gourock - (reverse of outward route) - Coventry

Notes :
(1) Brake failure at Upperby Bridge Jn (MP 67) and hauled forward to Carlisle by Upperby pilot 08xxx.
(2) Excursion to Gourock for a cruise on the Waverley. John Cowlishaw comments: I am fairly certain it was run in two portions and I travelled in the second one. I think the other portion were awaiting us a long time in Gourock and our cruise had to be curtailed and we had a brief stop in Millport, Cumbrae, which was not planned. The cruise did the Kyles of Bute but not sure what else other than it was a glorious day. Loco spotting was not my interest in those days and so what it all was I do not know, other than it was electric.
