Down stopping train from Cambridge approaching March
View eastward, towards Ely on the ex-GE main line, Ely - March - Peterborough/Spalding etc., also Wisbech and Kings Lynn. The 13.53 Cambridge - Kings Lynn, which will turn north to Wisbech immediately after March station, is headed by LNER ex-GE D16/3 class No. 62567. Built originally in 5/1908 as GE Holden class D56 No 1836 (D15 No. 8836 on the LNER) and rebuilt 10/37 as a Class D16/3, it was renumbered 2567 in 1946, becoming BR No. 62567 and withdrawn 12/56. Note the ordinary wagon behind the tender - unusual?
