Steam-hauled Excursion

"Here is a photo that I took of a Scottish Railway Preservation Society 'Santa Special' entering the Calton Tunnel when BR allowed steam trains to run round on the old suburban lines.

Note the old bus depot in New Street in the background."

Which year might this photo have been taken?
