Caterham Railway Company: Caterham Centenarian 6/8/56
This very short trip in appalling weather - I was soaked through to the skin cycling from Thornton Heath to Caterham to see it - saw the Brighton Works shunter, Stroudley Terrier 377S, journey from Purley to Caterham and back in the company of a red liveried SECR birdcage set. Here we see the ensemble resting at Caterham station and I just love the organized chaos in a scene that is unthinkable today more's the pity. Note the schoolboys wearing their school caps even on a Sunday. I took this picture by the way using a Kodak Brownie 127 plastic camera.
