Information is scant on this tour and any further data will be gratefully received!
(1) Just one loco recorded for this tour, believed only one involved.

A leaflet Nigel has from the day indicates a second train also ran on the same date, from Hinckley and picking up at Narborough, Leicester and Loughborough to another unspecified mystery destination.
