The Lancing Belle taken at Holland Road in September 1953 is in the charge of former SECR Wainwright 'D' class 4-4-0 no. 31734 piloting Ex-LBSCR Billinton 'E4' class 0-6-2T no. 32556.
If one accepts the date as correct - but personal experience gained during many years of experience suggests otherwise - I thought it would be of interest to find out where these engines were allocated at the time: 31734 was a Tonbridge engine whilst 32556 was an Eastleigh resident.
