An interesting shot of an LNER liveried Gresley A4 pacific with a 16 coach load taken near Hadley Wood (I think it should correctly be described as Hadley Common) in 1946/7. The engine is in wartime black livery and bears the number '26' together with the name Kestrel which narrows down the date when this was taken to somewhere between, according to Yeadon, 26/5/46 when the number was applied and 19/9/47 when no. 26 went into works later emeging with the name Mile Beevor.
