Leighton Buzzard Railway - goods train
Leighton Buzzard Railway - goods train
A train of wagons is seen in front of a passenger train. The locomotive is 778 - a 4-6-0T by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, Philadelphia, USA, No. 44656 of 1917. This was one of 495 built for the British War Department for use in France in WWI. It was then sent to India and finished its working life on a sugar mill railway. It was withdrawn in 1983. The design is recognisably American and it was nice to see it at work in the UK.
