RCTS Scotish Lowland tour - 1964


6_46256.jpg



I came across a collection of B&W pictures of the RCTS - Scottish Lowland Tour on 26/09/1964 which my father Geoffrey (who took these pictures) took me and my brother on. I would have been about 11 years old at the time.
We picked up the train at Preston station pulled by 46256 - Sir William Stanier. At Carlisle the engine was changed to 60007 - Sir Nigel Gresley which took us over the Waverley route towards Edinburgh. The engine was again changed to 60009 - Union of South Africa at Niddrie West Junction.Edinburgh which pulled us back via Glasgow Kilmarnock and Dumfries to Carlisle were 46256 took us back to Preston and onwards.
