Loco(s) Route

Manchester Victoria - ??? - Lancaster Castle (1) - Morecambe (Promenade?)


19.52d Morecambe Promenade - ??? - Manchester Victoria

Notes :
(1) This tour was a special half day excursion. At Lancaster on the outward leg seven coaches (LMS corridor) were detached and these formed 1Z44, the SLS/MLS 'Furness Rail Tour'. That tour terminated at Morecambe Promenade and the coaches were then booked to be shunted back onto this tour for the return to Manchester, however late running meant this did not happen and the trains returned separately.
