23rd April 1973

Aberdeen Evening Express
Lifeline Final

Loco(s) Used at least 263

Route :

Loco Route
??? Aberdeen [P6] - Kyle of Lochalsh
??? Kyle of Lochalsh - Aberdeen

Notes :
(1) John McIntyre queries the fact there is a tour listed on 22nd April, showing hauled by 264, stated as the first ever class 40 to Kyle of Lochalsh - is this in fact the train in question? Route & loco conformation required - did 263 work this train throughout?
