SRL No 244 Jubilee No 45593 at Bradford Foster Square station with the JRS South Yorkshireman rail tour 20th April 1966

A beautiful early morning shot in lovely light of Stanier Jubilee Class 4-6-0 No 45593 'Kolhapur' at Bradford Foster Square station waiting to work the JRS South Yorkshireman rail tour 30th April 1966. Closely watched by the fireman with flat cap and cigarette in the cab the photographer captures a stunning shot for us to enjoy many years later. The Jubilee would work to Settle Junction and then to Carnforth before working over the WCML to Carlisle. 45593 failed at Carlisle and was not the original choice that was 45565 'Victoria' but the loco was not available for the rail tour. At Carlisle Britannia No 70035 'Rudyard Kipling' took over for the run back down the S&C to Bradford.
