SRL No 721 U Class No 31639 at Fareham station Solent rail tour 20th March 1966

Maunsell U Class 2-6-0 No 31639 on the RCTS Solent rail tour at Fareham station 20th March 1966. The driver of the U Class keeps a watch for the signal to reverse back onto the train ready to work the next leg to Gosport and then back to Fareham. She was then paired up with Standard Class 4 No 75070 for the run to London Waterloo. In the morning WCBoB Class No 34089 '602 Squadron' had worked out of Waterloo for the outward leg too Salisbury. A couple of USA Tanks 30073+30064 had also been involved earlier in the day. A lovely shot capturing the other passengers all clicking away capturing the U Class in lovely light.
