LNER Gresley B17 'Sandringham' 4-6-0 No. 2826 Brancepeth Castle somewhere on the GER main line to Shenfield. The date is between 1932 and 1939 which has been derived from another negative in this small batch. The location was something of a mystery although the housing in the background suggested the London end of the line and Andy Rush has informed me that the train is approaching Chadwell Heath on the down Fast line whilst the distinctive footbridge in the background is No.90 at 9m 47½ch from London. 2826 became 61626 at nationalisation and its BR number was applied in October 1949. Withdrawal was from Cambridge mpd in January 1960.
