23rd September 1959 ran on 23rd May 1959

Stephenson Locomotive Society
S.L.S. Golden Jubilee Tour

Did NOT run on this date - simply a publishing error.

Loco(s) Used at least 60007 'Sir Nigel Gresley'

Route :

Loco Route
60007 ??? - ???

Notes :
(1) Photo published at Cambridge of 60007, heading north and carrying a 'Stephenson Locomotive Society Golden Jubilee' headboard and dated 23rd September 1959. Confirmation of date is required however as the SLS ran a "Golden Jubilee" tour on 23rd May however that didn't go through Cambridge - was there a second tour with the same name, or was the caption to the photo in error i.e. wrong date and location?

Terry Jackson is also certain the caption is incorrect and that the SLS did not run a second tour with 60007 and this has been further confirmed by Ian Clark (SLS).
