The ’15 Guinea Special’ was the last mainline passenger train to be hauled by steam traction under British Rail on August 11, 1968 and 1T57 (the train headcode, as it became popularly know) covered 314 miles during its 10¾ hour journey. 

Class 5MT 45110 had started the tour, taking the ten car train from Liverpool Lime Street to Manchester Victoria, where 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' was waiting to take 1T57 for the remainder of the journey. Crowds turned out in their hundreds to bid their farewells and local roads were littered with parked vehicles, particularly in the regular 'spotting' locations. Arrival at Carlisle was thirty minutes late, but the locomotive changeover time was reduced, with Class 5MT's 44781 and 44871 replacing, 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' as the tour retraced its route back to Liverpool Lime Street. At Manchester Victoria, Class 5MT 45110 once more took over the train, completing the trip back to Lime Street, where it became the last locomotive in British Rail service to return to its own shed.
