????? [2] Garlieston - Millisle
????? [1] ?Millisle - Dunragit?

Notes :
(1) Ian Clark (SLS) comments: It was noted that BR had suddenly deleted Garlieston from the SLS Wigtownshire Rail Tour of 02/09/1961 and had made facilities available for a brake van visit on Saturday 5.5.1962 with a special passenger train Dungrait – Millisle connecting with the 9am ordinary train ex-Glasgow St. Enoch & 4.50pm return (1962/p.4). Notice is in effect appealing for support. Did these run? No other SLS notice published near the date with other SLS activity taking place on 5th May (Thornton Jct. visit). It looks like the Garliestown visit was deferred until 15.4.1963
