Thompson B1 Class 4-6-0 No 61131 at Nottingham Victoria station with the LCGB Great Central rail tour 3rd September 1966. In view is the splendid North signal box. The B1 crew look back ready for the signal to reverse onto the train in the platform eagerly watched by a good gallery. Sister B1 No 61173 would then back onto 61131 and the pair double head to Elsecar Junction. Later in the day they would double head again from Sheffield Victoria back to Nottingham Victoria. Bullied MN Class No 35030 'Elder-Dempster Lines' would return the passengers back to London Marylebone having worked the morning outward leg from London Waterloo.
