SLS: Birmingham Area Rail Tour 30/5/59
Former Midland Railway Johnson 2F 0-6-0 no. 58271 somewhere between Harbourne and Birmingham (New Street). The wisp of steam at the rear of the train is another 2F in the form of no. 58283 as this part of the tour was top-and-tailed throughout. 58271 was built by Neilson, Reid in 1896 and was allocated to Monument lane shed when this shot was taken. Withdrawal from the same shed came in May 1961.
