(1) John Evans comments: .The trip was headed by a Jubilee 4-6-0 although rumour was that it would be a Duchess. When we arrived at Crewe No. 46240 'City of Coventry' had just arrived with an express from Carlisle so at least we saw a Duchess (we saw a couple of others in the works area). I remember seeing several Metrovic Co-Bo engines and lots of new Brush Type 4 diesels at Crewe, but my memory is not brilliant.
