"The End of Southern Steam", Romsey, 9th July 2016

45699 Galatea + 33207 T+T 1Z69 16:40 Weymouth - Southampton - Laverstock - Waterloo

 Running through Romsey station where the regulator was closed for a permanent way slack.

The question of the day is "Has a Jubilee ever passed through Romsey before ?". 45699 is understood to have arrived at Eastleigh for overhaul in February 1965, which wascancelled, and it then found its way to Barry scrapyard. So it may have been through Romsey, but perhaps a working Jubilee never has been. Interesting information on 1960s LMS interlopers on the Southern,
