Robert Ferris writes, 'the above photograph appeared in the August 1945
edition of the Railway Magazine with a caption stating that it appears to be
EWJR 2-4-0ST No 5 having brought the train in from Blisworth'. The

of the Great Central Railway. The photograph was supplied by George Dow from
his extensive collection.
