A superb action shot - makes a change from all those front threequarter shed shots - of an SECR birdcage set in the charge of Wainwright 'D' class 4-4-0 no. 1092 taken in North Kent. Those ever reliable experts in the SEmG Yahoo Group have pinpointed the location as "running into Northfleet station from the direction of Swanscombe with the cement works in the left background being those just above Swanscombe". No. 1092 would survive the war to become BR 31092 in March 1949 but withdrawal was just around the corner in June 1951 whilst allocated to Gillingham mpd.
