Loco(s) Route
Full route not known but the following is known:
??? Victoria - Clapham Junction - Staines Central - Ascot - Camberley - Sturt Lane west curve - Basingstoke - Eastleigh

Notes :
(1) Route & loco confirmation required. David Moore has raised a query over the running date of this tour as there was a very similar offering exactly a month earlier on 20th April, though that gives the loco as 30719. Has a published source of the time been guilty of multiple typo's i.e. both date and loco number?
