6th October 1962

(Kelvedon to Tiptree)

Traction Used ???

Route :

Traction Route
??? Kelvedon - Tiptree (and return?)

Notes :
(1) It is suspected this excess fare ticket might be for a brake van/cab ride and may have been in some way connected with the R.C.T.S. half-day railtour that ran the same day (the Kelvedon to Tiptree line by this time had closed to remaining freight traffic a week before, on 28th September 1962) - maybe undertaken by a passenger who was also on the R.C.T.S. trip? Other Internet sources state the final movement on the branch was 28th September 1962 but the excess ticket seems to suggest otherwise?
