LNER/BR Class J27 0-6-0 No. 65859 at Darlington Shed 1965 - Low Resolution Image

A schoolboy trainspotter in his anorak and school uniform of peaked school cap, shirt, tie, pullover, blazer, short trousers and knee socks, poses for a photo in the cab of Class J37 0-6-0 No. 65859 at Darlington Shed 51A on Easter Sunday 18th April 1965.

The loco was a Wilson Worsdell NER development of Class J26, built by Beyer Peacock Ltd in August 1908 and withdrawn from 52F North Blyth shed in September 1966. It was scrapped by Hughes Bolckows, North Blyth in December 1966.

Although being slowly phased out, shorts and caps were items of school uniform common at this time.
