(1) Originally uplaoded as having run on 16th April 1988 in error.
(2) Route & loco confirmation required. Despite carrying a headboard proclaiming "Phil's Seventieth Birthday" this was in fact a 'normal' SLOA outing (?South Yorkshireman?) which carried the headboard in the northbound direction to commemorate the 70th Birthday of a former engineman who was on the train and was a regular driver of the train engine, 5305, when it was in BR service.
