Stirling ex-SER R1 0-6-0T No. 31107 and a cut down class compatriot double-head a goods train at sometime in 1958. An interesting contribution from David Woodcock: "Both locos are working very hard and I suspect that the location is where one might expect to find R1s in multiple heading a train - the Folkestone Harbour branch. The first wagon appears to be an (empty) oil tank wagon for ship's bunkerage and, perhaps surprisingly, there was still a thrice-weekly cargo service between Folkestone Harbour and Boulogne using TSS Whitstable (in her last year in 1958) and TSS Deal."
