I have received an enquiry from the curator of The Hong Kong Museum of History, who is participating in a major study into the Chinese Nationalist leader, Dr. Sun-Yat-Sen, who led the Chinese Nationalist forces in opposition to Mao-Tse-Dong and the Chinese communists in the Chinese Civil War during the 1930's and 40's.

Dr. Sun-Yat-Sen arrived in Liverpool on a liner from the United States on Friday 10 November 1911, and travelled to London on an express service arriving in London that evening.

The Museum have asked if the Society can help them by identifying the most likely trains that Dr. Sun-Yat-Sen could have travelled on from Liverpool, (Riverside?) to Euston on that date.

Also would these have been 'American Specials' stock used?

Does anyone have any period timetables that they could consult to help provide any information to help please?

Many thanks

The Up Boat Trains were "Q", that is untimetabled and running when required to suit to time of arrival of the boats. Asssuming that the Doctor arrived at Riverside (and not the Landing Stage) the we can expect that the train was formed of American Special stock. Beyond that it is hard to add much.
