Yep, this was a Rail Tourist Association charter held on 23 April, 1988. Drivers for the tour were Ron Scholten and Peter Bhardo (hope I got the spelling correct). Attached are a few happy snaps of the tour and details of where it ran to. With regards to the route number 69 shown at Albert Park Beach terminus--that was a favourite on fan tours for its suggestive connotation of 'something'. Lol. Another favourite route number was 0E, translating to 'nought e' or 'naughty'.

Andrew Cook (glad to have done tram tours before the nanny state brigade turned up).

I suspect the occasion was a fan tour.
