LCGB: The Surrey Downsman Rail Tour 5/3/67
Bulleid original West Country pacific no. 34102 but without its Lapford nameplates was in charge of two legs of this convoluted tour and is depicted here struggling to lift the stock on the climb from Tulse Hill to West Norwood Junction which is where this shot was taken from. Eventually, following several attempts and a great deal of slipping, 75077 was retrieved and acted as banker with immediate success.
