BR Southern region electric unit, 4-CEP no. 7105, at Sutton in May 1971. The interest in this shot is the fact that the train, headcode 20 Victoria to Portsmouth Harbour via Mitcham Junction, is actually a service diverted via West Croydon and is shown here crossing from the West Croydon line to rejoin its normal route to Horsham and beyond. The line via Hackbridge was closed for engineering works over what I think was the Whitsun weekend.
