A schoolboy trainspotter walks gingerly across the tracks towards the locos. He is wearing a school uniform of peaked school cap, blazer, short trousers and knee socks, with an army style knapsack on his back. Although being slowly phased out, shorts and caps were items of school uniform common at this time.
