SECR Wainwright/Maunsell 'L' class 4-4-0 no. 1781 is heading north out of Penge Tunnel at Sydenham Hill station. The white paint on the left was to aid sighting of the signal (the unusual motor-worked Sykes banner distant was Penge East's down distant, note the treadle replacer - Sydenham Hill's up distant at the other end of the tunnel was also a Sykes banner), that on the right was to aid sighting of the guard's right-away flag.
