David Peel requested information on an RCTS railtour that ran to Bishopgate goods in the 1950s.

It ran on the 6th September 1953 and used D16 62567 out of Bishopsgate Goods Depot, (there is a good photo of it leaving the depot in the book "Focus on Freight - Eastern Region Freight since 1960" by Shaun Pearce) and the following is the extract from the RCTS Railtour Files (Ref: 24):
