LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton
Ex-LMS 8F 2-8-0 No 48681 is seen standing on the up
passenger loopline shunting a goods train on 5th May 1959. It is thought that
the locomotive is shunting a trip working which has come off the Aston line and
is being set back into the sidings. Built for the LMS as No 8681 by Brighton
works in January 1944, No 48681 was to remain in service until March 1968 when
it was withdrawn from 8E Northwich shed.
