LNWRS Photo Ref 9418

This super picture is a gorgeous classic worth examining in detail: It shows ‘G1’ class Explain '‘G1’ 0-8-0 Locomotive Class' 0-8-0 No.1487 rousing the town as it sets out from Northampton past Duston West signal box  Explain 'Signal Box' with sixty wagons of coal for London. Anyone who has heard one of these splendid engines cannot help but hear the delightful sound effects in their mind as they picture it climbing away into the distance, the wagons trundling a weighty thunk-thunk, thunk-thunk, thunk-thunk as they pass. Just look at the sheer length of that train! Yet No.1487 will keep it at 28—32 mph all the way whenever it is given free rein. This was the LNWR keeping industry and the business of Britain at work. Can you see the man leaning on a pram, watching in the field?
