LMSR Hughes designed 'Crab' 2-6-0 no. 13151 in charge of a fitted freight speeds through Lichfield Low Level station. 13151 was built at Crewe and entered service in February 1930 but was renumbered 2851 in May 1934. Withdrawal came as BR no. 42851 at Edge Hill on 1/12/62.
There was obviously a club outing going on here. Just look at the number of observers on the embankment and the uncropped version of the image shows even more push bikes in the foreground.
