LMSR Stanier red liveried 'Coronation' pacific no. 46226 Duchess of Norfolk but where and when aren't stated on the slide. No. 46226 spent most of the 1950's and all its 1960's years allocated to Carlisle sheds and would be withdrawn from Kingmoor mpd during the cull of this class in September 1964. A viewer has kindly written to me with the suggestion that the location is Beattock and that the line branching off to the right is the erstwhile branch to Moffat which closed to passengers in 1954. Photographic evidence is available in Wikipedai that confirms this and so 46226 was self-evidently southbound when this shot was taken.
