A heavy oil train from Fawley refinery to Bromford Bridge struggles up the Lickey Incline near Vigo with Standard 9F 2-10-0 No. 92218 on the front and banked in the rear by another 9F, 92230, and two ex-GWR 0-6-0PTs, Nos. 8402 and 8400 - super power indeed! They are making an all-out effort to get the train up the two mile long 1 in 37 gradient between Bromsgrove and Blackwell, Friday 22nd May 1964. Slide No. 685.
