An unidentified Stanier 5MT 4-6-0 in charge of an Up passenger working approaches Appleby station. The junction is to the Stainmore line where, today, there is Appleby North signal box in front of the signal in the photo. Howeve,r this replaced a box on the Down side which was destroyed by fire in 1951 If you look above the loco's boiler on the Down track you will see a small chimney which would be that box. This dates the photo 1948 -1951.
