Can't remember where this was taken or who sent it to me: the (in)famous Easter 1963 tour on the Callander and Oban when a blizzard was encountered on the return.

Frozen stiff we stuck it out at Clydebank Riverside to see her stop there.

In 1963 CR 123 visited the Bluebell Railway and these are some photos of her time there.
