January sunlight captures this scene at Sharnal Street on the Allhallows branch to perfection on 9/1/60. Wainwright 'H' class 0-4-4T 31517 is in push mode and red liveried pre-grouping coach S 4758 S is the one vehicle of the P-P set visible. More info on the set would be appreciated.
Ian Dudley mentions: According to Mike King's book, Composite S4758S was paired with Brake Third S2643S in Set 733. Conversion to Pull-Push had been undertaken in early 1943. Although allocated to the Eastbourne-Hailsham service in 1943, these sets did move around and this set was used on the Allhallows branch during 1960.
