LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham

Redditch Station: mrred411

A Johnson goods engine on an Evesham to New Street service approaches Johnson 0-4-4T No 1259

The passenger train on up (right) line is probably a Johnson single-frame goods engine with Johnson 0-4-4 No 1259 on a local suburban passenger service standing in the down platform waiting to return to Birmingham New Street. Bob Essery believes the photograph was taken prior to 1905 which would mean that No 1259 would be renumbered No 1263 in the 1907.
