Notes :
(1) Route & loco confirmation required. David Ingham comments: I photographed this train approaching Chester hauled by 777 and later departing Chester hauled by 5000. I think 777 hauled the train between Hereford (departing at 12:30) and Chester and 5000 hauled the train back from Chester to Shrewsbury (departing at 16:40). This is one of two railtours to use these two steam locos on this date.
