View northward along Platform 4 at Crewe: major junction on the WCML. Stanier 'Jubilee' 6P 4-6-0 No. 45647 'Sturdee' (built 1/35, withdrawn 4/67) is calling with the Saturdays Only 10.10 Edinburgh Princes Street - Birmingham New Street, while two locomotives coupled run on the Up Through from Crewe North Shed to take up southbound trains, the second being Stanier 5MT 2-6-0 No. 42954 (built 1933, withdrawn 2/67 - the last of its class). Main-line electrification had been in operation for a year, but so far only from Manchester Piccadilly.
