LMSR Fairburn 2-6-4T no. 2226 awaits departure from the Up platform at Pitsea on the LTSR main line. A viewer informs me that the platform coping in the foreground is the former bay platform that connected to the Up Main.
No. (4)2226 would eventually move away from the LTSR in 1962 and continue in service to be eventually withdrawn at Stoke-on-Trent in June 1964.
