From Trains Illustrated magazine volume XIV, number 151, published April 1961 by Ian Allan Limited.
This is the exhibition train chartered by Westward Television to publicise the inauguration of commercial television in Devon and Cornwall this spring. The Western Region 4-4-0 No. 3440 City of Truro was provided to haul the train during its West Country travels and these photographs of the interior and exterior were taken at Kensington Olympia before the television train was given a ceremonial send-off by the Lord Mayor of London on February 9.
