Sheffield Victoria South Yorkshire Spring 1969

Sheffield Victoria South Yorkshire Spring 1969
LNER A3 4472 (60103) runs eastwards through Sheffield Victoria station light engine to wait for the stock of its special train to arrive. It's running with one tender so the engine number is nowhere to be seen, just a LNER crest on the cab-side and the letters LNER on the tender-side.

The 1500v DC overhead wires are evidence that the Woodhead route is still open & this ex-Great Central Railway main line is still in business. The station and its passenger services only lasted until January 1970 however.
