A view taken from Windmill Bridge Junction signal box of Bulleid/Raworth 'Booster Co-Co electric loco no. 20003 in charge of an Up freight, probably originating at Three Bridges marshalling yard. The head code indicates that the train is heading for the West London line via Crystal Palace LL with a loco change en route.
Judging by the missing signal arms on the lattice posts, the 'box has just been taken out of use thus dating the shot to late March 1954. The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution with its gardens can be seen on the left.
