|65064||Cliff Common - Elvington - York Layerthorpe (?- York?)|
(1) 65064 was photographed at Layerthorpe, Thorganby and Cliff Common, outwards tender-first, return chimney leading. It would appear 65064 was the sole traction, however confirmation of this is required. The return journey from Cliff Common to York (?BR station or Layerthorpe?) was advertised to be non-stop. On the outward leg it was stated that the train would call at most intermediate stops for 'photographic and inspection purposes'.
(2) Confirmation is required if the train operated either way between York (BR) station and York Layerthorpe - it was advertised to do so but neither the tour itinerary nor ticket suggests it actually did.
