LNER/BR Peppercorn A1 Class 4-6-2 No. 60124 'Kenilworth' at Darlington Shed 1965

A trainspotter wearing a sheepskin jacket and jeans poses for a photo beside London & North Eastern Railway/British Railways Peppercorn Class A1 4-6-2 Pacific No. 60124 'Kenilworth' at Darlington Shed 51A in April 1965.

The loco is on standby duties by the turntable so if necessary, it can be turned quickly. By this date, there were only two A1s left on the North Eastern Region: 60124 and 60145, both on standby duties with the former at Darlington and the latter at York. Withdrawal came on March 27th 1966. In May it was sold for scrap to Drapers of Hull but was seen lying withdrawn at York shed on the 21st and again on July 7th but this time minus a chimney.

York station, Christmas Eve 1964. I remember a dismal day and an Up, double-headed express passenger train calling here, no. 60124 being the train engine. My spotting notebook reminds me this event happened around the middle of the day, a consequence of the failure of the Deltic's train heating boiler (no. D9017). On 18 September 1965, this A1 was required to make more effort when I saw her during the afternoon, calling at York on an Up express-passenger.
