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

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

The quintessential Sixties schoolboy trainspotter in his school uniform of peaked school cap, shirt, tie, pullover, blazer, short trousers and knee socks, poses for a photo in front of London & North Eastern Railway/British Railways Peppercorn Class A1 4-6-2 Pacific No. 60124 'Kenilworth' at Darlington Shed 51A on Easter Sunday 18th 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 In May it was sold for scrap to Drapers of Hull but was seen lying withdrawn at York shed on the 21st and again on July 7th but this time minus a chimney.

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