It's literally the end of the line for Maunsell 'L1' class 4-4-0 no. 31754 seen here stored at Nine Elms shed on 3/5/60. 31754 was built in 1926 by the North British Locomotive Co. (NBL) as was the case with the rest of this class and spent all of its nationalised working life allocated to Dover Marine mpd until the Kent Coast electrification brought an end to Kent meanderings and transfer to Nine Elms where withdrawal came in November 1961.
Of the chalked writing on the tender only "2/6 THE LOT" is legible.
