A less than perfect image but worth including for the unusual location which is Epsom Downs station presumably pre-WW2. The central subject is SR green liveried former LBSCR Marsh I3 class 4-4-2T no. 2023 which had emerged from Brighton works in february 1909 and was superheated from new. 2023 survived into the nationalised era acquiring BR branding in April 1949 whilst a Tunbridge Wells West engine. Transfer to Brighton came in April 1951 and withdrawal just three months thereafter.
