London trams
LT tramcars await their collective fate at the famous Penhall Road scrapyard in Charlton. At the right of the shot is The now redundant Thornton Heath/Purley snowbroom 034 awaiting its fate with the others at Penhall Road yard, Charlton. At its last repaint this snowbroom was beautifully turned out and was kept so. It carried its original passenger car classification of CLASS B on its rocker panels. Interestingly, the last snowbroom in service in 1952 was Holloway's 037 which too was similarly treated but carried CLASS C due to its different builder.
Behind 034 is another of the works fleet - a Class J stores van.
