(1) Route confirmation required. The tour got into trouble on the climb from Dunfermline Lower to Dunfermline Townhill Junction. Despite some wheel-slip, it made it into the loop at Townhill. The loco was low on water. 56104 was sent from Thornton depot and took the train via Ladybank and Hilton Junction to Perth where the tour terminated 3 hours late.
