LCGB: The South Western Suburban Rail Tour 5/2/67
BR Standard 2MT 2-6-0 no. 77014 on the Staines to Windsor & Eton Riverside line, viewed from the embankment where the Staines branch crossed over. 77014 was the motive power for much of this tour and hauled it from Waterlook via East Putney to Chessington South and back to Wimbledon Park, Twickenham to Windsor & Eton Riverside and Surbiton to Hampton Court by which time it was too dark for lineside photography.
77014, something of a wanderling, would, just five months after this shot was taken, lay claim to being in charge of the very last timetabled steam hauled passenger train in the south of England.
