Loco Route
45128 London St Pancras - (via MML) - Bedford

Notes :
(1) Keith Hayward comments: Special train organised for a Sunday morning for BR officials to talk to the public about the forthcoming BedPan electrification works. Tickets were free and included travel from your home (BedPan) station to London and back from Bedford. No timings were issued, and I have no record of any times. I do however remember a friend closing the booking office at one of the stations where the train stopped en route in order to get a ride behind his favourite loco!
