(1) Tour was celebrating 25 years of the SRPS.
(2) 673 failed on the Forth Bridge due to lack of steam and was assisted in the rear to Inverkeithing by 47562 on a service train (an Edinburgh to Dundee service?).
(3) SRPS archives list the class 26 as 26035 however photographic evidence seen by the Webmaster confirms the class 26 used was indeed 26036, not 26035 (see below).
