LCGB: The Rother Valley Limited 19/10/58
Southern Railway Maunsell E1 class 4-4-0 no. 31019 at Robertsbridge and as the tender seems to be devoid of coal this was probably taken shortly after arrival from, of all places, Paddington via a convoluted route. This wouldn't be the end of 31019's exertions as it would continue to be the motive power to bexhill west and finally crowhurst. 31019 would be withdrawn from service whilst allocated to Stewarts Lane mpd in April 1961.
