Unidentified BR 9F 2-10-0, Blackwell, 15th August 1964
At Blackwell at the top of the Lickey Incline, an unidentified BR Standard 9F 2-10-0 is at the head of a Class D semi-fitted freight and had stopped for the Guard to pin-down the brakes of the loose coupled wagons in the train. It is now having to work quite hard to get the train on the move again as it starts the two mile descent of the 1 in 37 gradient. It will stop again at Bromsgrove, bottom of the bank, for the brakes to be released before continuing southwards. Saturday 15th August 1964. Slide No. 976.
