    Collection of photos of Rail Tours from 1967 & 1968

    This collection features allready preserved LYR ‘Pug’ 51218
    L.C.G.B. (North West Branch) + Roch Valley Railway Society 19th February 1967
    Built in 1901 at the L&Y Horwich works, 51218 was acquired direct from British Railways in late 1964 and delivered from South Wales to the Worth Valley Railway to become the first locomotive there on January 7 1965.
    The last overhaul had been at Horwich in 1963, when a boiler new in the 1950s was fitted, after which it was sent back to South Wales but did very little work. As a result, restoring 51218 to steam at Haworth did not require significant work and by May 1965 it was operating around Haworth Yard and later some works trains on the branch.
    As larger engines arrived at the Worth Valley, the opportunity was taken to temporarily move across to Lancashire where 51218 operated railtours and was hired out to a factory. One railtour was unique in running with brake vans on the operational BR branch to Whitworth
