Socialist outburst on a 4F 0-6-0 at Bury in 1963
By August 1963 the Conservative Party/Marples/Beeching 'Reorganisation of British Railways' was in full effect: the outdated and denigrated steam locomotives were becoming concentrated in the northwest and Bury was one of their last strongholds. Here at Bury Depot, a surviving LMS Fowler 4F 0-6-0 No. 44311 (built 1926, withdrawn 7/66) is inscribed - quite justifiably - 'Integration, not Extermination' on its cabside by one of the men who no doubt were soon to lose their lifetime jobs.
