LNER/BR Worsdell Class J21 0-6-0 No. 65033 at Darlington Works 1963

LNER/BR Worsdell Class J21 0-6-0 No. 65033 at Darlington Works 1963 - Low Resolution Image

Withdrawn LNER/BR Worsdell Class J21 0-6-0 No. 65033 stands in the yard at Darlington North Road Works on Sunday 21st July 1963. It was withdrawn from North Blyth shed 52F in April 1962. 65033 had actually been withdrawn on 22nd November 1939 as LNER No. 876, but due to wartime shortages had been repaired and returned to service. No. 65033 remained at Darlington for a number of years waiting for a scrap merchant. Luckily this allowed it to be preserved, originally at the Beamish Museum. In March 2009, 65033, passed into the hands of 'The Locomotive Conservation & Learning Trust' and it is hoped eventually it will be moved to the Stainmore Railway Company, at Kirkby Stephen East where it once ran in its working days.

Two trainspotters pose in locos cab. One Geoff Hamsher, is wearing a sheepskin jacket and slacks, carrying a BOAC bag. The other, David Matthews, wears a anorak and long trousers.
