Meaford No. 2

 

On troop train duties the ex British Electricty Authority locomotve Meaford No.2 passes the signal box at the entry to Blythe Bridge station as the signal awaits the single line token from the driver. Last Saturday was the War Weekend at the Foxfield Light Railway and Meaford No.2 worked train duties between Blythe Bridge and Dilhorn Halt.

Your composition is totally spot on, Les, as are the colors. I have really grown in love with all these by-gone trains. What keepsakes!
Les Auld: They do have an attraction of their own Ginnie, thanks for the comment.

Is the engineer passing a hammer (it seems to me)? Great shot.
Les Auld: It is the Single Line Token that permits the train to travel that stretch of line. Thanks for the comment Louis.
Great shot Les, all that tackle laying about, a nice box and a loco I have not seen before.
