13th August 1978
(Merrymaker Excursion - Deltic to Skegness)
|Loco Used||55015 'Tulyar'|
Route : 1G53 throughout
|55015||09.00 London Kings Cross - Lincoln Central|
|55015||13.26 Lincoln Central - Skegness|
|55015||17.37 Skegness [P7] - London Kings Cross|
(1) Route confirmation required. Date confirmation also required although this is believed correct - 55015 is also shown as running an identical tour to Skegness the following Saturday (20th) however that is believed to be in error as 55015 was also reported on that day working 1L06 10.40 Kings Cross – Bradford.
55015, a few minutes prior to departure from Skegness's 'rare' platform 7,
stands alongside 25310 (+25320) on 1M83, the 18:15 Skegness to Derby.
