Tour Review
(from Dave Spencer)

This is one of those infamous SEG extravaganzas that over 15 years later shows what could be arranged in the BR days. I believe that certain SEG officers had a major hand in the timings! I doubt that such an event could be operated today!! Joining at Clapham Junction, connection off the early morning Manchester - Brighton. Nowadays it can't be done!! This tour was right time virtually all day. All these Southern branches were 'caned in' for loco and stock. Smart operating by all concerned ensured that a full itinerary was achieved and congratulations should be given to all involved in its running. Early arrival back at Waterloo ensured that I made the 20.40 Euston to Wolves.
