The Faverdale Exhibition 1925

A brief note. I was in the Search Engine at NRM York 16.06.09 and had the Faverdale Exhibition catalogue 1925 and also the LPC account of the 1925 S&D Railway Cavalcade to look at. In neither could I find any reference to the Weardale Coach Rob Roy (see previous posts to make sense of this). This means at present we only know about the arrival of the coach at the old York Railway Museum through the photographs and the horn for which minuted references are known (see earlier posts). A considerable mystery attends both the exact date of arrival and departure after several decades of this not inconsequential exhibit. The museum has gone out of its way to "rediscover" what has been noted in this blog and at this point, without a further major lead appearing, I propose to close the subject. If you have anything to add, please do so with a comment here.
