Two locomotives

One of the photographs donated to Metal by Dennis Flood, a railway enthusiast (not to be confused with the photographer of the same name). Dennis purchased the photo from the photographer, Mr Jim Peden.

Here we see two tender locomotives, one very close behind the other, possibly impyling that they are coupled. A platform is visible on the left, with two men standing on it, but the first locomotive, at least, is already past the set of points leading to that platform. To the right we see a number of apparently disused trucks, and a signalbox and a bridge - with a locomotive passing through it in the opposite direction to, but on the same line as, the other two - are visible in the backgorund

This view shows three ex.London and North Western Railway (LNWR) Super `D` classes opposite Edge Hill Station. The leading two Super`D`locomotives had worked a special into Edge Hill and were in the process of `running round`so that they could be re-coupled at the head of the special to work it forward.            The signal box in the background is Waterloo Tunnel Mouth,which led to Liverpool Riverside Station at the Pier Head. The building in the top right corner of the picture is the ex.LMSR fruit and vegetable depot,situated on the corner of Tunnel Road and Picton Road. The wagons to the right of the leading locomotive are stabled in Waterloo Sidings,awaiting forward movement.
