LMS Route: Stratford Midland Junction - The Shakespeare
E&WJR and SMJ - Locomotives and Rolling Stock:
E&WJR 2-4-0 No 13 is seen standing on the original
turntable outside Stratford upon Avon shed. With a power classification of 'C'
the locomotive was more than capable of handling the duties of a Class 9 branch
freight train which is what its headlamps would indicate. The turntable was
relocated and replaced with a larger one in 1908, hence the dating, as the SMJ
was created from 1st January 1909 and the loco received a new ownership plate.
Note the slotted signal post in the background.
