Loco Used ex-BR D2203
Stock Used B575670 + B560430 (open wagons)

Route :

Loco Route
D2203 Hemel Hempstead (Cupid Green) - Redbourn - Roundwood halt - approx mile short Harpenden Jn (1)
D2203 (2) approx mile short Harpenden Jn - (reverse of outward route) - Hemel Hempstead (Cupid Green)

Notes :
(1) A set of hopper wagons was stabled just to the west of the former triangle at Harpenden Jn, preventing further progress towards the MML.
(2) Loco propelling.
(3) The wording on back of the ticket and a specific time on the front suggests multiple runs were made on the day?
