SU9946 : Peasmarsh Junction

taken 55 years ago, near to Shalford, Surrey, Great Britain

Peasmarsh Junction
Peasmarsh Junction
A special steam train leaves the Portsmouth Direct line at Peasmarsh, heading for Horsham. This was a day out for the locomotive, USA tank 30064, which was used as the Guildford shed pilot.
The Guildford - Horsham line closed in 1965 and this junction was removed.
The USA tanks were a US Army Transportation Corps design, bought by the Southern Railway in 1946, and were mostly used at Southampton Docks.
