Picture of the Week: 45593

I took these 3 picture some years ago when steam began to return to the mainline after years of banishment after the end of steam in 1968. I think I must have been working at the carriage sidings at Tyseley that day. Here is Stanier 5X 4-6-0 Jubilee 5593 Kolhapur which had just arrived at Tyseley station having working up from Stratford Upon Avon with The Shakespeare Express. For those in the know, the crew on the footplate are Saltley men Dave Wright and Roy Lune (Luny) enjoying the day. Next stop Moor Street station. Sunday 7th June 1986.

No picture next week away on holiday.
