LMSR Guard at Nottingham Midland station, noting the weight of the train, 1936. The guard had to ensure that the train's weight was within the capacity of the engine assigned to the job. The guard's main responsibilities were: the safety of the train and its passengers and the punctual running of the service.
It's early evening in September 1959 at the top of Camden bank and 46234 has given her stock, that of the Royal Scot no less, a helpful shove away from Euston station. It's good to see the tail board of the Royal Scot depicted for once albeit only at the edge of the frame.
