(1) Each trip above presumably required a different ticket. Also referred to as 'Forth Bridge Centenary Steam Trains' and, in the photo below, the headboard 'The Forth Centennial' was carried. It is also believed the train may also have run on 19th May 1990 and 1st September 1990 - confirmation and details of this are required.

60009 comes off the Forth Bridge at Dalmeny. This photo was
un-dated so may be of one one of the other dates (if indeed the
train ran on multiple dates).
