Manchester Patricroft Lancashire 5th June 1968

Manchester Patricroft Lancashire 5th June 1968 

As well as the Caprotti-valved BR Standard 5 4-6-0s Patricroft also ran the Walschaerts versions of the Standard 5. This example, 73010, captures the sun in the entrance to the 1885 London & North Western Railway Old shed flanked by two Stanier 8Fs, 48374 on the left.

My visit was well timed because the shed closed at the end of June 1968 and these engines went for scrap.
