29th June, 1962: HOLIDAy EXPRESS AGAIN

THE Great Northern Line have gain made arrangements to run the popular Holiday Express train from Lincoln, Gainsborough and Misterton to various holiday centres during the first week of the district holidays.

The Holiday Express will run on alternate days, as in previous years, the destination stations being Scarborough on Monday 30th July, Chester on Wednesday 1st August and Blackpool on Friday 3rd August.

Scarborough and Blackpool have always been popular destinations for passengers on this train and for this reason they are being repeated this year. However, with the object of providing greater variety this year, an inland destination is included for the first time and Chester has been chosen.
