British Railways North Eastern Region Steam Engine
1948 built Peppercorn A2 pacific no. E531 Barham in apple green livery storms southwards through Durham. This set of images came to me with no attached data but the condition of the engine suggests that this shot was taken when it was pretty much brand new in March 1948. I've been informed that 531 entered traffic on 12/3/48, was renumbered to 60531 on 25/11/48 and was shedded at Gateshead when this shot was taken.
