SRL No 789 Gresley A3 Class No 60044 at Darlington passing North signal box with the up Anglo Scottish Car Carrier 8th June 1963
A superb action shot of Gresley A3 Class 4-6-2 No 60044 'Melton' passing Darlington North signal box with the Up Anglo-Scottish Car Carrier 8th June 1963. No 60044 had just eight more days of working life before withdrawal on the 16th June from 34A Kings Cross. Taken just a fraction earlier framed between the two signals would have been perfect but hey I still wish I had taken it!
