Spotted in Earlwood, next to the Tonbridge line….
And a few minutes later, the train drifting into Redhill….
Paul posted on Facebook this picture of Liverpool Street station in the 1920’s. What a gloomy barn of a station! But a few years earlier, it would have been full of lovely royal blue locos, including the Claude Hamilton 4-4-0’s. In the 1920’s the coaches would still have been teak, but the locos repainted in a pleasant, but not as attractive, LNER green.
