60009, Glasgow St. John's, 26th September 1964
LNER A4 4-6-2 No. 60009 "Union of South Africa" takes water at Glasgow St. John's goods yard whilst working the RCTS "Scottish Lowlander Railtour" on the leg from Edinburgh (Niddrie West Junction) to Carlisle via Kilmarnock. The coaching stock of the tour train can be seen on the left of the picture. I'm not sure that the driver's (or fireman's) rather precarious perch on the water tank would pass muster with today's Health & Safety rules! Saturday 26th September 1964. Slide No. 1077.
