26th April 1958

The Pennine Limited

Locos Used 41063, 41100, 60157 & 71000
Stock Used 9 coaches including 'Devon Belle' Pullman observation car

Route : Reporting Code 510 (throughout?)

Loco(s) Route
60157 London Kings Cross - (via ECML) - Doncaster - Shaftholme Jn - Knottingley - Pontefract Monkhill - Cutsdyke Jn - Castleford - Ledston - Garforth - Leeds City
41100 + 41063 Leeds City - Farnley Jn - Huddersfield - Stalybridge - Stockport - Crewe
71000 Crewe - Stafford - Lichfield - Rugby - Bletchley - Tring - Watford Junction - London Euston

Notes :
(1) Pre-tour advertising clearly named this trip as 'The Pennine Pullman II'. Bruce Nathan confirms this and also the reason for the name change; BR standard first class stock and LNER restaurant/kitchen cars were used instead of Pullmans. 41100 + 41063 carried reporting code 510 but was this used throughout?
