Wainwright 'H' class 0-4-4T no. 31308 enters Newington station on the main line between Gillingham and Sittingbourne. A viewer has pointed out that the number 227 carried on the headcode disc was a special traffic number for excursions worked by Gillingham locos which was where 31308 was allocated when this shot was taken.
31308 moved from Gillingham to Brighton in March 1959, to Tonbridge in January 19661 and finally to TWW in May 1962 where withdrawal came in the December.
