LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Redditch Station: mrred411
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.
