(1) A published listing of all RCTS railtours between 1938-1969 does not mention this tour however the SLS Journal p.25/49 did record this as a jointly-organised outing. The tour ticket only mentions the SLS so it is suspected that the RCTS were invited to participate rather than it being jointly-organised.
(2) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings. Train reported as running '+1' at Catford and '-1' at Streatham.
