QX11.06 RCTS Railtour on Alweg monorail near Cologne

On ebay there recently was a photo (taken by Gordon Stewart?) from the year 1959 on auction showing the test train of the Alweg monorail on the test site near Cologne. The photo description said that this was taken in connection with a RCTS Special and behind the windshield of the Alweg train a sign is visible saying "RCTS".

I do continuous research about the Alweg monorail history (in memory of my father, Alweg engineer from 1953 to 1967; more details on my website www.alweg.com ). Has the RCTS any archives that might include details and photos of this 1959 special excursion, or might it still be possible to find members of RCTS who took part in this excursion? The photo can be seen at http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250781337360&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:DE:1123
