RCTS: The Sussex Special Rail Tour 7/10/62
Maunsell Schools class 4-4-0 no. 30925 Cheltenham en route from London Bridge on the non-stop run to Brighton via Redhill. The precise location came to me in my Fotopic days from Blair Robinson whose 'patch' this was: "The train is climbing Forest Hill bank, but is actually between Brockley and Honor Oak Park. The photo is taken from the footbridge at the end of Eddystone Road, and links to Brockley Way, a favourite spotting point of mine on the way home from school. In the distance can be seen two bridges, the lower of which carries the Catford Loop line between Nunhead and Catford."
