A most unusual sight of an Up passenger train waiting to depart from the Down Epsom branch platform at Sutton station. The occasion was a day excursion to Margate organised by the supporters of the Carshalton Athletic football club. The assigned locomotive is Nine Elms allocated Maunsell 'N' class mogul no. 31409 but the stock was actually brought to Sutton by a pair of Maunsell Q's.
Note the white hoops painted on the stanchions which allegedly helped people to avoid bumping into them during wartime blackouts.
