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 In May it was sold for scrap to Drapers of Hull but was seen lying withdrawn at York shed on the 21st and again on July 7th but this time minus a chimney.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.

London & North Eastern Railway/British Railways Peppercorn Class A1 4-6-2 Pacific No. 60162 'Saint Johnstoun' with another unidentified Class A1 at Carlisle Canal Shed 12C on Saturday 15th June 1963, two days before closure. The loco was withdrawn later that year from 64A St. Margarets shed on 28th October 1963 and cut up at Inverurie Works in February 1964.

Although a poor photo, I have included this in the gallery, as these were the last two passenger engines to be seen on Canal (my local) shed. Although the shed was officially closed on 17th June, all its allocated locos were gradually moved to Kingmoor shed during the week before closure. By the next day, Sunday 16th June, the shed was deserted; the end of an era.
