York MPD had officially closed to steam the previous month but it was utilised to service 'Bitannia' Class Pacific Pacific No. 70038 'Robin Hood' on 2nd July 1967. It had arrived on 1Z15, the Stephenson Locomotive Society 'Electric/Steam Tour' from Birmingham New Street, which it hauled from Stockport via Leeds and return. AC electric traction was used for the remainder of the journey. The end was near and the loco was withdrawn the following month and scrapped by J McWilliams of Shettleston during December of that year.
