LCGB: The Green Arrow Rail Tour 3/7/66
This tour didn't work out as planed because the assigned Gresley V2 had been failed before the off and Bulleid original West Cuntry no. 34002 Salisbury was substituted. The V2 did make its way to Basingstoke but was agin failed and so took no part in the day's events. However, one can reasonably assume thain glorious sunshine.the participants enjoyed the tour's other major event which was Ivatt 2MT 'Mickey Mouse' 2-6-2T no. 41298 traversing the Weymouth Quay Tramway as depicted here on the outward leg. The train has just passed under Town Bridge and is heading for the Quay station.
