44946, Wakefield Kirkgate, 6th May 1967
On an utterly foul morning at Wakefield Kirkgate station, "Black 5" 4-6-0 No. 44946 approaches what was the rear of the three coach train from Bradford which arrived behind 2-6-4T No. 42073. Once coupled up by the shunter already on the track (note the only orange part of his uniform is the BR North Eastern Region cap badge!), the train reversed around the curve to Wakefield Westgate to be coupled to an express from Leeds to King's Cross. Note the coach on the left is in BR blue livery and has a North Eastern Region number, NE21217. Saturday 6th May 1967. Slide No. 2760.
