Here we see Thompson B1 class 4-6-0 no. 61104 on the Lickey incline with Bromsgrove visible in the background. There are plenty of onlookers which suggest the occasion was special in some way and I wondered if this was one of many football specials that had originated in south or west Yorkshire. Viewer comments would be appreciated.
No. 61104 had moved to Sheffield Darnall in 1959 from East Anglia and alternated between that shed and Mexborough mpd until withdrawal from the latter in December 1962 at only fifteen years of age.
