Report Date Title Report Source
30/04/1947 Victoria Station S.E. & C. 4-4-O's of various classes, including Nos. 1515, 1545, and 1760 have been noted piloting 'H2' No. 2423 on Victoria-Newhaven boat trains which have not been loaded above the recent 4-4-2 capacity, but it was probably on account of the service slacks due to landslides and track repairs following the severe weather.
