A genuine 'semi' and on Southern metals as well. This is Stanier pacific no. 46236 City of Bradford with headcode discs indicating a Plymouth bound train photographed between Clapham Junction and Earlsfield during the Locomotive Exchange Trials. I've been informed that this timetabled train is the 1050 Waterloo – Exeter 'Atlantic Coast Express' on either Tuesday 22 June 1948 or Thursday 24 June 1948 those being the only dates when 46236 ran southbound on the SR with GWR Dynamometer Car No.7. The WD eight wheeled tender lettered LMS was used in order to carry more coal than its usual tender could.
