This loco was a NER 'R' class and most would survive into the BR era but 356 was withdrawn in September 1946 following a collision at Harrogate. Withernsea station closed to passenger traffic on 19/10/64 and to all other traffic on 3/5/65.
The long wheelbase wagon is an NER ' road van' which was used to transport a number of small items, each consignment insufficient to warrant a van or wagon of its own. So, essentially a goods van to be attatched to a pick-up goods train.Overall length over buffers was 30', wheelbase 15'.
