SRL No 684 A4 Class No 60008 on a Leeds-Kings Cross express at High Dyke 8th June 1963

Gresley A4 Class 4-6-2 No 60008 'Dwight D Eisenhower' on a Leeds-London Kings Cross service north portal of Stoke Tunnel passing High Dyke sidings 8th June 1963. The photographer spent a lovely sunny afternoon on top of the tunnel with his good friend Malcolm Castledine who can be seen lower down near the track side also photographing the action. It was later on that Malcolm's notes confirmed to John that this was indeed 60008 and not 60023 that John had written on the slide mount. Many other watchers on the embankment enjoying the action.
