taken 71 years ago, near to Harlesden, Brent, Great Britain

West Coast Main Line and Sudbury Sidings, Harlesden
West Coast Main Line and Sudbury Sidings, Harlesden
View NW from Acton Lane Bridge by Harlesden Station, which is in a cutting on the DC Electric lines - here running on the far side of the main lines. The freight train is coming out of Willesden (Sudbury) Low Level Sidings towards No. 7 Box. In the middle are the Down and Up Fast and Slow main lines and beyond are the Willesden (Brent) Empty and associated Sidings. It is an evocative scene of a very busy section of railway. The locomotive on the freight is Stanier 8F 2-8-0 No. 8630, which was built on the SR at Brighton in 1943 for the LMSR, on which (and later BR(LMR)) it stayed throughout until withdrawn in 7/65.
