(1) Originally uploaded as running on 8th April but date corrected by Tony Willmore. Route & loco confirmation required - it is known that the steam loco took water at Sheffield. Tony Willmore comments: Locos were 47823 to Sheffield and 5029 Nunney Castle disguised as 5069 IKB for the return. I can't remember where it started from but I joined the train at Banbury. Definitely went through York on its way to Sheffield though.
