View westward; ex-Great Eastern main lines. Both the locomotives are quite new Brush 1,250 hp Type 2 A1A-A1A's (later Class 31/1), first introduced in 10/57. On the left is the original one, No. D5500, on the 11.12 to Gorleston Holiday Camp; on the right (on the Down Slow line) No. D5506 on the 11.08 to Walton-on-Naze. D5500 became No. 31.018 and after withdrawal in 6/76 was honoured by preservation at the National Railway Museum, York.
