13th August 1978

British Rail
(Merrymaker Excursion - Deltic to Skegness)

Loco Used 55015 'Tulyar'

Route : 1G53 throughout

Loco Route
55015 09.00 London Kings Cross - Lincoln Central
55015 13.26 Lincoln Central - Skegness
55015 17.37 Skegness [P7] - London Kings Cross

Notes :
(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.
