Waiting for a signal

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. A locomotive pushing a goods train is forced to stop at a quadrant signal, watched by passengers waiting on a platform served by the line to the right. To the left, another goods train has also been made to stop by a signal: on the line served by the platform, the signal is at all-clear, but no train is visible

This photograph shows two ex.London & North Western Super `D` locomotives arriving at Edge Hill with a special service. They will eventually run around the train and re-couple to go forward. The wagons to the right of the picture are stabled in Waterloo Sidings. The large building seen above them is the Parcels Depot.
