30587, Hampton Court, 2nd December 1962
L&SWR 0298 Class Beattie 2-4-0WTs Nos 30585 and 30587 are in charge of the joint RCTS/SLS "South Western Suburban Railtour" and have now reached the terminus of the branch to Hampton Court where they were due to take water before running round the train. Despite it being a sunny day it was very cold and the water supply was frozen solid. With their small water tanks almost empty this was something of a crisis and preparations were made to drop the fires - fortunately, someone contacted the local Fire Brigade who turned up in time to replanish the engines' tanks... Sunday 2nd December 1962. No. 30585 has already come off the train into the shunt neck, leaving just 30587 on the train. B&W Neg No. 230.
