Turn left in 100 yards
In the days when engines were in their rightful place at the front of the train, instead of underneath. Large logo 47422 ambles through a foggy Guide Bridge and is just about to turn left onto the Stalybridge line, with a Liverpool Lime St to Newcastle service. Tue4Dec90. Scanned

Now this could also be at the rear of the train - with a DVT at the other end! My Dad, who was essentially a GWR steam man, seemed flummoxed when having to caption a photo of an early DVT. Mind you the GW had push & pull trains, so I don't know what the different was with DVTs.
It amazes me how often one sees locos at both ends - not down here where the engines are all underneath - but in 'Rail' and other magazines.

Time was when the only time you saw a loco at both ends of a train was when it was being pushed up a hill, or a shunt move....
