Maunsell 'U' class mogul no. 31616 in charge of a trip goods working photographed on the approach to Sutton from Cheam. The railings visible behind the tender stand above the so-called 'Wall of Death' where the line from Sutton descended steeply towards Wimbledon. This shot was taken in late November 1963 shortly before Norwood shed was closed and steam ceased to be the motive power of choice for this service.
